Must-Watch Documentaries

Must-Watch Documentaries
 
One of our New Year’s resolutions is to keep learning, and now that we need to spend a lot of time at home, what better way to do it than from the comfort of your sofa? We put together our top five documentaries that we think you must watch:

  

  1. We’re going to start our list with a couple about the impact of fashion in our eco-system. The True Cost, on a personal note, it was the first documentary that helped us to open our eyes about the truth behind fashion. In 2015, director Andrew Morgan released a documentary film which exposed the dark side of the fashion industry around the globe. It’s truly devastating what is happening behind the scenes, but it will help you to understand better why we all should support the conscious fashion movement.
    You can watch it now on Netflix.

  2. River Blue, we heard of this documentary on the podcast Conscious Chatter. Mark Angelo is a river advocate, and this documentary follows him on a journey through some of the world's most beautiful to most polluted rivers. The name of this documentary is coming from a river on Chintan-China, where the river runs blue with denim dye (as denim production took off in this area a few years ago).
    The garment industry has a massive environmental footprint, for example, a cotton shirt can take up to 2,500 litres of water or a pair of jeans can take between 7,000-9,000 litres of water.
    You can watch it now on Amazon Prime.

  3. Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things, in our society there is this misconception that “more is better”. This documentary by Matt D'Avella, interviews people who are rejecting the American ideal that things bring happiness, between them we’ll find The Minimalists (Ryan Nicodemus and Joshua Fields Millburn) who will take us on their tour and explained to us how minimalism changed their lives.
    You can watch it now on Netflix.

  4. We’re going to end our must-watch documentaries focusing on our environment. Our first one is Chasing Coral, the Emmy-winning film has helped millions of viewers understand the coral reef crisis. For three years, Jeff Orlowski and his team followed the work of The Ocean Agency recording how some of the Earth’s most incredible natural wonders around the world are vanishing at a scary rate.
    You can watch it now on Netflix.

  5. David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet, it came out only a few months ago and we watched it twice already. Attenborough walked us through his travels and experiences around the world, exploring the wild places of the globe. In this film, they show some data ( population, CO2 emissions and wildlife) that change quite drastically through the years. Though you can see how we’re destroying the Earth’s ecosystem, this is a cry for help to change our habits, as there is hope but we need to act fast!
    You can watch it now on Netflix.
