LOS ANGELES (AP) - The anti-bullying film "Bully," the climate-change study "Chasing Ice" and the AIDS chronicle "How to Survive a Plague" are among 15 features on the short list for the Academy Award for best documentary.

Other contenders announced Monday are the Ethel Kennedy documentary "Ethel," the health care exploration "The Waiting Room" and the music portrait "Searching for Sugar Man," tracing the fate of acclaimed but obscure 1970s singer-songwriter Rodriguez.

The other documentaries are "Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry," ''Detropia," ''5 Broken Cameras," ''The Gatekeepers," ''The House I Live In," ''The Imposter," ''The Invisible War," ''Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God" and "This Is Not a Film."

Members of the academy's documentary branch will narrow the list to five nominees. Nominations come out Jan. 10, with the Oscar show following on Feb. 24.
