Nominations for the 96th Academy Awards were announced Tuesday morning, including one for a documentary with a moving healthcare narrative.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that The Eternal Memory was one of the five movies nominated for Best Documentary Feature Film. Maite Alberdi, who was nominated for an Oscar in 2021, directed the film. Its nominees for producers remain to be determined.

The Eternal Memory tells the story of a Chilean couple — journalist Augusto Góngora and actress Paulina Urrutia — whose 23-year marriage is upended when Góngora is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Eight years removed from his diagnosis, Góngora no longer recognizes Urrutia, but their love and commitment to one another remain.

The film had its world premiere at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Grand Jury Prize. 

“This film opened our hearts by bringing us closer to the meaning of life and death, and the element that threads sense into all of it — love,” the Sundance jury citation read. “Through a simple yet complex portrayal of a confinement, it brings us to the lives of these fascinating characters who make us wiser and more loving the longer we stay with them. The World Cinema Grand Jury Prize: Documentary goes to The Eternal Memory.”

Distributed by MTV Documentary Films, The Eternal Memory is available for streaming on Paramount+. The 96th Academy Awards will be held on March 10.

The Eternal Memory wasn’t the only healthcare-focused story vying for a golden statue this year. Late last month, the film was shortlisted for the Oscars along with nine other documentaries. 

Among those in the Documentary Feature Film space, there were a few healthcare-related narratives, such as A Still Small Voice. This film followed Mati, a chaplain completing a residency at Mount Sinai Hospital, where she learned to provide spiritual care to people confronting profound life changes.

There was also Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie, which documented the acclaimed actor’s life living with Parkinson’s disease, as well as American Symphony, which detailed Grammy Award-winner Jon Batiste’s tumultuous year while his wife Suleika Jaouad receives treatment for leukemia.

As for Documentary Shorts category, there was Oasis, which highlighted the story of Remi and his younger brother Raph, who lives with a disability, as well as If Dreams Were Lightning: Rural Healthcare Crisis. Neither of those films were among the five nominated for an Oscar.
