Netflix has reportedly acquired its second Oscar-nominated documentary with short The Lady in Number 6: Music Saved My Life.

The film is nominated for the Documentary Short Subject category, and is up against CaveDigger, Facing Fear, Karama Has No Walls, and Prison Terminal: The Last Days of Private Jack Hall.

The Lady in Number 6 is about Alice Herz-Somer, the world’s oldest known Holocaust survivor until her death, which just happened on Sunday.

According to both The Hollywood Reporter and IndieWire, the film will premiere exclusively on Netflix on April 1st in the U.S. and Canada. Both share this statement from producer Nicholas Reed:

“Telling Alice’s story was a life-changing experience for everyone involved with the film. We are so glad to partner with Netflix so that their viewers will be able to enjoy Alice’s infectious love of life and bright spirit. Netflix viewers and future generations will be able to learn so many life lessons from this most amazing woman.”

Last year, Netflix acquired The Square, which is currently available on the service, and has an Oscar nomination in the Documentary Feature category.

    This is a totally erroneous, misleading report! I can’t find it on Netflix and called Netflix: they said that they do NOT have this documentary movie and that one should Never trust a reporter’s story about Netflix, but only go directly to them. Well, Now I know! Please, Mr. Crum, be more careful with trusting Your sources! Helen

      The article says that the documentary will premiere on April 1st. So it’s not on Netflix yet.
