Searchlight Pictures has released a trailer for the upcoming short documentary, “The Last Repair Shop”, which has been nominated for an Oscar and recently won the Critics Choice Documentary Award for Best Documentary Short.

Once commonplace in the United States, today Los Angeles is by far the largest and one of the last American cities to provide free and freely repaired musical instruments to its public schoolchildren, a continuous service since 1959. From Academy Award®-nominated directing duo Ben Proudfoot and Kris Bowers, The Last Repair Shop grants an all access pass to the nondescript downtown warehouse where a dwindling handful of devoted craftspeople keep over 80,000 student instruments in good repair.

Check out the trailer below:

In addition to its recent Oscar nomination, it was nominated for Best Score by the Hollywood Music in Media Awards, Outstanding Independent Short Film by the Black Reel Awards, and Best Short by the Hollywood Creative Alliance’s (HCA) Astra Film Awards. The film was also included on DOC NYC’s influential 15-film Short List as well as the Cinema Eye Honors’ 10-film Shorts List.
