'Colette' revisits World War II trauma and wins Academy Award for best documentary short


In just 24 minutes, the charismatic and courageous "Colette" reminds us just how close, and how personal, Second World War history can be. This concise, powerful film saw producer Alice Doyard and director Anthony Giacchino pick up this year's Academy Award for best documentary short. Alice tells us more about working with former resistant Colette to prepare a trip to the Nazi camp where her brother died in 1945.
