Blood Ties: The Life and Work of Sally Mann
I'm pretty sure it's a short (that won an Oscar nomination as a short)
Where did 80 minutes come from?

(Note: The earlier response was inaccurate. Please ignore.)

The title for the link above is What Remains (a.k.a. What Remains: The Life and Work of Sally Mann), which is the 2005 follow-up to the short film. It would appear a user mistakenly submitted the wrong running time information as well as removing the keyword Short from the Genre section.

In addition, according to the Amazon.com page, the short is available as an extra on the DVD release of What Remains.

An update has been submitted to correct the running time and add the term Short to the Genre section.

In addition, a request will be made to add a Movie Connection to both titles. 

Thanks for the report.

Thank you. Most importantly, why did this happen and how to stop this from happening in the future. I only discovered the problem while visiting the list of my favorite shorts.

I wished I had the answer.

In my opinion (as a long-time contributor, not an official representative of the IMDb), the database is only as good as the users posting the information. As you have noticed, mistakes do happen and can be corrected if a different user notices the error and either reports the error and/or submits an update correcting the error.

Thanks again for the report.
