The documentaries I recommend here you’ll notice are not fluffy, entertaining ones.  Each of them explore some pretty thought provoking and challenging topics which will make you a better person, I promise you 😉   If you don’t have access to Netflix and really want to watch them you might have to purchase them. 

But I promise you, I don’t get a single red cent from your purchase.  I’m recommending them because I think they’re thought provoking, not because they make me money.
