Documentaries help us change perspectives. Or, at least, they should. This one, for instance, achieved its goal and its audience (hopefully). It is approachable, making people realize the impact of their unconscious decisions and, therefore, they become more aware of their actions and start to shift plans. It's hard to believe, but true, that through visual example humans are more willing to change behaviour than from receiving the same information through speech or from having it written down. We don't predict the future, we shape it by determination and desire to strive for a better day.
