Thirteen years of war. Dozens of car bombings every month. One goal: to become an Olympic champion. The true story of grit and determination, of young men literally fighting for their lives... See full summary »
Drawing surprising connections between market methods and CIA torture techniques developed in the 1950s, the film explores how well-known events of the recent past have been theaters for the shock doctrine, from Pinochet's coup in Chile, to the Tiananmen Square Massacre, to the war in Iraq today.
Coral reefs around the world are vanishing at an unprecedented rate. A team of divers, photographers and scientists set out on a thrilling ocean adventure to discover why and to reveal the underwater mystery to the world.
Gary Tarn's remarkable, award-winning documentary, BLACK SUN, investigates this through the story of Hugues de Montalembert, a New York-based artist and filmmaker who was blinded by a vicious attack in 1978.
What if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we'll ever get to build a better world? Filmed over 211 shoot days in nine countries and five continents over four years, This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change. The film presents seven portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana's Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond. Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Naomi Klein's narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. Throughout the film, Klein builds to her most controversial and exciting idea: that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better.Written by
Skip to the last part of this movie about Germany. That's the positive part about how to succesfully make a change. The rest is doom and gloom. Bummer.
This movie changes NOTHING, because it's too much doom and gloom, with only few positive solutions offered. My advice:skip immediately to the last part of this movie about Germany, so you can experience first hand the positive alternatives that are IN ACTION RIGHT NOW in the biggest economy of Europe, Germany.
Unfortunately the rest of this movie is rather depressing and longwinding and will probably only bore and depress people. Please do try and watch it though, because this documentary is intelligently told and full of wisdom, but it's too timid, slowburning and depressing in character.
Everybody knows about the many disasters waiting to happen IF we dont change anything. I wanna hear new positive solutions that we can do NOW on this very day OURSELVES. Therefore this movie is a bit of a missed opportunity, because there is too little focus on what we as oridinary people can do right now, besides protesting...
