We’ll have to see when the final nominations arrive, but Dror Moreh‘s The Gatekeepers is currently on the shortlist for nabbing the Best Documentary Oscar and now Sony Pictures Classics has delivered a gripping theatrical trailer for the film that is hitting theaters in a few months after a qualifying run.
There’s been a fair share of intense documentaries this year, most notably the wild true story of The Imposter, but this film may one-up it.
