    War-mongering Corgi among winning films at student Oscars

    LOS ANGELES (AFP) – Cinema is meant to unite the world – but an animation about a Corgi who inherits the British throne and wages nuclear war with France was among the winners of the Student Academy Awards last Thursday.

    Monsters Inc and Up creator Pete Docter presented a medal to Barking Orders, which playfully imagines Queen Elizabeth’s favourite dog breed bent on global domination, at the annual ceremony held by the Oscar-awarding Academy.

    The Student Academy Awards are a key programme of the Hollywood film industry’s top body, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

    Gold awards went to films on hard-hitting topics such as apartheid South Africa (When The Sun Sets) and the environmental challenges facing Californian beekeepers (When They’re Gone).
