"By showing hunger, deprivation, starvation and brutality, as well as endurance and nobility, documentaries inform, prod our memories, even stir us to action. Such films do battle for our very soul."
- Theodore Bikel

Documentary film not only plays a major role in informing, educating, and raising awareness to issues that affect us all on a global level but, documentaries also have the ability to profoundly affect us on an emotional level. I believe this emotional connection is an essential component when viewed in conjunction with an objective analysis of all the facts and data that relate to a particular topic, subject, or event. A symbiotic & balanced relationship that can create, and propagate, the passion, empathy, and pragmatism, essential to making a meaningful humanitarian contribution. It is in this regard that documentary films can prove invaluable in changing our world.

The purpose of this list is to inspire, raise awareness, document, and provide for a multilateral and progressive approach to it's subject-matter. Specifically from a global perspective. This is supported by various documentaries, related IMDb Watch Now Video Links, relevant narrative-films & music-videos, Official Site Links, Amazon Book Links, and relevant external links that collectively address the universal connection between various facets of the human condition, man and nature, and the ongoing global issues that confront us all. This is supported by both; factual information, and, the views, statements or quotes, from, among others; world leaders, philosophers, scientists, activists, artists, and documentarians.

*Please note: Though social and political issues are addressed, the content of this list is devoid of my personal opinion, and has no political or religious agenda, whatsoever. Any conclusions regarding the issues or views expressed on this list (including those of the films and videos contained within) is left entirely to the individual's own analysis and interpretation.

Stephen R. Covey: "Every human has four endowments - self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom... The power to choose, to respond, to change."

This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

Edward Robert Harrison quote: "'By convention there is color, by convention sweetness, by convention bitterness, but in reality there are atoms and the void,' announced Democritus. The universe consists only of atoms and the void; all else is opinion and illusion. If the soul exists, it also consists of atoms."

Max Planck quote: "As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about atoms this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter."

“ Michio Kaku quotes: "It is often stated that of all the theories proposed in this century, the silliest is the quantum theory. In fact, some say that the only thing that quantum theory has going for it is that it is unquestionably correct."

"Beyond work and love, I would add two other ingredients that give meaning to life. First, to fulfill whatever talents we are born with. However blessed we are by fate with different abilities and strengths, we should try to develop them to the fullest, rather than allow them to atrophy and decay. We all know individuals who did not fulfill the promise they showed in childhood. Many of them became haunted by the image of what they might have become. Instead of blaming fate, I think we should accept ourselves as we are and try to fulfill whatever dreams are within our capability.

Second, we should try to leave the world a better place than when we entered it. As individuals, we can make a difference, whether it is to probe the secrets of Nature, to clean up the environment and work for peace and social justice, or to nurture the inquisitive, vibrant spirit of the young by being a mentor and a guide."

"Physicists are made of atoms. A physicist is an attempt by an atom to understand itself."

"You can look to the stars in search of the answers
Look for God and life on distant planets
Have your faith in the ever after
While each of us holds inside the map to the labyrinth
And heaven's here on earth

We are the spirit the collective conscience
We create the pain and the suffering and the beauty in this world

Heaven's here on earth
In our faith in humankind
In our respect for what is earthly
In our unfaltering belief in peace and love and understanding

I've seen and met angels wearing the disguise
Of ordinary people leading ordinary lives
Filled with love, compassion, forgiveness and sacrifice

Heaven's in our hearts
In our faith in humankind
In our respect for what is earthly
In our unfaltering belief in peace and love and understanding

Look around
Believe in what you see
The kingdom is at hand
The promised land is at your feet
We can and will become what we aspire to be

If heaven's here on earth
If we have faith in humankind
And respect for what is earthly
And an unfaltering belief that truth is divinity
And heaven's here on earth

I've seen spirits
I've met angels
Touched creations beautiful and wondrous
I've been places where I question all I think I know
But I believe, I believe, I believe this could be heaven
We are born inside the gates with the power to create life
And to take it away
The world is our temple
The world is our church
Heaven's here on earth

If we have faith in humankind
And respect for what is earthly
And an unfaltering belief
In peace and love and understanding
This could be heaven here on earth."

What if the moon never had existed? (60 mins.)
Director: Martyn Ives
“ Tahereh Mafi quote: "The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves. It's always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it's a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human."

Quote from 'Keeping the Moon' - By Sarah Dessen:
"I don't believe in failure, because simply by saying you've failed, you've admitted you attempted. And anyone who attempts is not a failure. Those who truly fail in my eyes are the ones who never try at all. The ones who sit on the couch and whine and moan and wait for the world to change for them."

Moon Facts

*The moon is not a planet, but a satellite of Earth.
*The surface area of the moon is 14,658,000 square miles or 9.4 billion acres.
*Only 59% of the moon's surface is visible from Earth.
*The moon rotates at 10 miles per hour compared to the Earth's rotation of 1000 miles per hour.
*When a month has two full moons, the second full moon is called a blue moon. Another definition of a blue moon is the third full moon in any season (quarter of year) containing 4 total full moons.
*From Earth, we always see the same side of the moon; the other side is always hidden.
*The dark spots we see on the moon that create the image of the man in the moon are actually craters filled with basalt, which is a very dense material.
*The moon is the only extraterrestrial body that has ever been visited by humans.
*The first space craft to send back pictures from the moon was Luna 3 (built by the Soviet Union) in October 1959.
*The moon has no global magnetic field.
*The moon's diameter is about 1/4 the diameter of the Earth. About 49 moons would fit inside the Earth.

WHO | Climate Change and Health

Key facts

* Climate change affects the social and environmental determinants of health - clean air, safe drinking water, sufficient food and secure shelter.
*Between 2030 and 2050, climate change is expected to cause approximately 250 000 additional deaths per year, from malnutrition, malaria, diarrhoea and heat stress.
*The direct damage costs to health (i.e. excluding costs in health-determining sectors such as agriculture and water and sanitation), is estimated to be between US$ 2-4 billion/year by 2030.
*Areas with weak health infrastructure - mostly in developing countries - will be the least able to cope without assistance to prepare and respond.
*Reducing emissions of greenhouse gases through better transport, food and energy-use choices can result in improved health, particularly through reduced air pollution.

WHO | 7 Million Premature Deaths Annually Linked to Air Pollution

25 MARCH 2014 | GENEVA - In new estimates released today, WHO reports that in 2012 around 7 million people died - one in eight of total global deaths - as a result of air pollution exposure. This finding more than doubles previous estimates and confirms that air pollution is now the world's largest single environmental risk.
Reducing air pollution could save millions of lives.

“ Iain Stewart quote: "The 21st century is like a golden age for geologists. We live in a age where we can see geological processes going on in front of our eyes. We're probably the first generation of geologists to be able to do that, and that's for two reasons. One, we have instruments with such precision we can measure things in great detail, and satellites that can tell us of millimeters of movement within decades. And on the other hand, we are driving change so fast that we can see it happening before our eyes - in terms of changes in land use and in the chemistry of the oceans and atmosphere, as well as the fact that humans move more matter artificially than all of the erosion processes do, with bulldozers, digging and mining, etc."

And here plants and animals proliferate in such numbers that we still have not even named all the different species. Here, animals and plants, insects and birds, mammals and man live together in intimate and complex communities, each dependent on one another. Two thirds of the surface of this unique planet are covered by water, and it was here indeed that life began.

And it's an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefor, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea - whether it is to sail or to watch it - we are going back from whence we came."

“ David Attenborough quote: "Dwarfed by the vast expanse of the open ocean, the biggest animal that has ever lived on our planet. A blue whale, 30 meter long and weighing over 200 tonnes. It's far bigger than even the biggest dinosaur. It's tongue weighs as much as an elephant, it's heart is the size of a car and some of it's blood vessels are so wide you could swim down them. It's tail alone is the width of a small aircraft's wings. It's streamlining, close to perfection, enables it to cruise at 20 knots. It's one of the fastest animals in the sea. The ocean's largest inhabitant feeds almost exclusively on one of the smallest krill, a crustacean just a few centimeters long. Gathered in a shoal, krill stain the sea red. A single blue whale in a day can consume 40 million of them. Despite the enormous size of blue whales we know very little about them. Their migration routes are still a mystery and we have no idea where they go to breed. They are a dramatic reminder of how much we still have to learn about the ocean and the creatures that live there. Our planet is a blue planet."

“ David Attenborough quote: "Midwinter, and the countryside is so still, it seems almost lifeless. But these trees and bushes and grasses around me are living organisms just like animals. And they have to face very much the same sort of problems as animals face throughout their lives if they're to survive. They have to fight one another, they have to compete for mates, they have to invade new territories. But the reason that we're seldom aware of these dramas is that plants of course live on a different time-scale."

"Ever since we arrived on this planet as a species, we've cut them down, dug them up, burnt them and poisoned them. Today we're doing so on a greater scale than ever. We destroy plants at our peril. Neither we nor any other animal can survive without them. The time has now come for us to cherish our green inheritance, not to pillage it - for without it, we will surely perish."

“ Quote: "Many people think of the dinosaurs as the first inhabitants of the earth, but this prequel to 'Walking with Dinosaurs'-(1999 TV Series) puts viewers in the midst of a host of strange creatures that inhabited the earth millions of years before the dinosaurs ever existed. With the help of complex computer animation and the research of hundreds of paleontologists, the BBC presents an extremely realistic picture of the earth's earliest, most primitive aquatic inhabitants and chronicles their evolution to the precursors of man himself and the mighty dinosaurs. The first 'Walking with Monsters' episode begins in the Cambrian period 530 million years ago, showcasing how a simple jellyfish-like sea creature evolved over 200 million years into new creatures with eyes and protective external and internal skeletal systems. These adaptations resulted in the world's first fish, arthropods, amphibians, and land-loving reptiles." ” - Dr-Faustus

They also supported an impressive array of body modifications including horns, scales and crests. So far, the remains of over 1,000 different dinosaur species have been identified from fossils though technically, birds are feathered dinosaurs, meaning dinosaurs aren't really extinct at all."
