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.
“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.
