IDA Documentary Award Noms: “Fire of Love,” “All the Beauty and the Bloodshed,” & More

Sara Dosa’s “Fire of Love” and Laura Poitras’ “All the Beauty and the Bloodshed” are showing no signs of slowing down as awards season heats up. Hot on the heels of Cinema Eye Honors nominations, they’ve scored IDA Documentary Award noms. Both titles are up for the ceremony’s top honor, Best Feature Documentary. Of ten films up for the award, five are helmed or co-helmed by women.

“Fire of Love” charts the epic love story of volcanologists Katia and Maurice Krafft, while “All the Beauty and the Bloodshed” pays tribute to photographer Nan Goldin’s art and activism. Joining “Fire of Love” and “All the Beauty and the Bloodshed” in the Feature Documentary category are Isabel Castro’s “Mija,” a portrait of an ambitious young music manager facing high expectations from her parents and working on achieving big dreams of her own, Akuol de Mabior’s “No Simple Way Home,” the story of a mother and her two daughters who return home to South Sadan after being in exile, and Neasa Ní Chianáin and Declan McGrath’s “Young Plato,” which spotlights a headmaster at a primary school in Belfast.

Dosa and Poitras also scored Best Director nods, accounting for two of five nominees.

Women directed three of dive titles up for Best TV Documentary or Mini-Series. Kristen Lappas’ look inside the 1996 U.S. women’s Olympic basketball team, “Dream On,” is being recognized alongside Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing’s “Endangered,” an investigation into how journalists are being censored and threatened, and Joy Elaine Davenport’s “Fannie Lou Hamer’s America,” which honors the civil rights activist.

IDA honorees will be announced and will be celebrated in a separate ceremony in New York in Spring 2023.
