LOCAL ACADEMY AWARD® WINNERS TO HOST SPECIAL BENEFIT PRESENTATION OF THEIR ACCLAIMED FILM

Inocente
2013 Oscar® winning filmmakers for Best Documentary Short, Sean & Andrea Nix Fine, celebrate their triumphant homecoming with a benefit showing of their film

Chevy Chase, Md. March 24, 2013. Chevy Chase residents Sean & Andrea Nix Fine received national attention when they won the Oscar for ‘Best Documentary Short’ last month at the Academy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles. Now their friends, neighbors and fans can see Inocente, the Fines’ Academy Award-winning film. Inocente will be shown for one-night only, on April 11th. There will be two screenings, at 6:30pm & 8:30pm, at the historic Avalon Theater, 5612 Connecticut Avenue NW, Washington DC. Sean and Andrea will introduce their film and host a Q&A session after each showing. Sean and Andrea Nix Fine are a husband-wife team, both highly regarded filmmakers. They won the hearts of millions with Inocente, an intensely personal coming-of-age documentary film about a teenage immigrant named Inocente Izucar. The young woman refused to give up on her dream of being an artist in spite of being forced to live homeless for the last nine years. The story is told entirely in Inocente’s words, as her life reaches a turning point and she takes control of her own destiny. Inocente is a timeless, transformational film – as well as a statement on homeless children in America. Admission is $15 and tickets are on sale now at www.TheAvalon.org. Seating at The Avalon Theater is limited, so it is recommended that tickets be purchased in advance. All profits from the April 11th screenings will benefit A Reason To Survive, a charity dedicated to supporting and advocating for arts programs that empower youth facing adversity. Inocente Izucar is a student of A Reason to Survive. For more information.
