Hi! Today I’d like to share some of my favorite documentaries. Let’s go!

The True Cost (2015)

We save our water, choose organic products, separate waste and google ingredients of the products that we put on our skin.

But what do we know about the clothes we put on our back?

The documentary investigates the impact of our fashion choices on our planet and ourselves. The filmmakers show us eye-opening results of consumerism and greed rotting our world.

If you’re interested in fashion or you’d like to know more about the importance of your everyday decisions this is definitely a movie for you!

The Woman Who Wasn’t There (2012)

7572492-3

An absolutely crazy story of a 9/11 survivor, Tania Head. I don’t want to give anything away – be prepared for a massive plot twist!

Children of Leningradsky (2005)

It’s a heartbreaking, thrilling picture of kids living in a train station. For 35 minutes we see their everyday struggles – hunger, addictions, haunting past, police brutality and death. We learn about their hopes and find out why they ended up homeless. We look them in their eyes and in a 9-year-old face we see an old, sad man.

The movie can be easily found on Youtube. But be aware that some of the scenes from the film may haunt you for a long time.

Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?: An Animated Conversation with Noam Chomsky (2013)

Amazingly  well put together interview movie about one of the greatest thinkers of our time – Noam Chomsky.

If you have heard about Noam Chomsky but you’ve never actually read his books or articles you might want to watch this documentary.

Chomsky and Gondry chat about humanity, language, philosophy and Chomsky himself. The conversation is  illustrated with hand-drawn, crooked animation. 

What are your favorite documentaries? Is there anyhing you would recommend?
