It’s a strange, scary world to be a child in right now. With so much anger and tension, seeing the youth and innocence of children might feel resentful, but it shows what has been lost. Capturing the world of children is what Oscar-nominated filmmaker James Longley sets out to do with his next documentary feature, “Angels Are Made Of Light.”

Longley made his directorial debut in 2002 with “Gaza Strip,” a film that focused on a 13-year-old boy crossing the Gaza Strip, at a place where Palestinian children often go to throw stones. But it was the filmmaker’s 2007 film, “Iraq In Fragments” that earned the Longley his very first Oscar nomination for Best Documentary Feature. The film received rave reviews as the documentary chronicled the lives of Iraqis living in a time of war, occupation and ethnic tension. The following year, Longley earned another Oscar nomination with “Sari’s Mother,” a short subject documentary about a mother seeking healthcare for her 10-year-old son, afflicted by AIDS.
