    Documentaries

    I will post 4 who have been made in the last years, i will post some more if somebody likes the idea.
    Feel free to recommend any documentary you like.







    Jesus Camp : 2006


    A growing number of Evangelical Christians believe there is a revival underway in America whereby Christian youth must take up the leadership of the conservative Christian movement.

    directed by Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady (The Boys of Baraka), follows Levi, Rachael, Tory and a number of other young children to Pastor Becky Fischer's Kids on Fire summer camp in Devil's Lake, North Dakota, where kids as young as 6 years-old are taught to become dedicated Christian soldiers in God's army. The film follows these children at camp as they hone their prophetic gifts and are schooled in how to take back America for Christ. The film is a first-ever look into an intense training ground that recruits born-again Christian children to become an active part of America's political future.


    The documentary shows how they wash up the brain for those innocent kids, something disgraceful, but unfortunately it's all true.


    Why We Fight : 2005

    He may have been the ultimate icon of 1950s conformity and postwar complacency, but Dwight D. Eisenhower was an iconoclast, visionary, and the Cassandra of the New World Order. Upon departing his presidency, Eisenhower issued a stern, cogent warning about the burgeoning "military industrial complex," foretelling with ominous clarity the state of the world in 2004 with its incestuous entanglement of political, corporate, and Defense Department interests.


    The Children of Leningradsky : 2004


    this 35-minute documentary, takes an unblinking look at the reality of homeless children living in Russia today - in particular the ones who call the underground Leningradsky train station in Moscow home. Utilizing verité footage of over a dozen children who speak candidly about their lives, routines and lost dreams, the film captures the sobering reality of post-Soviet Russia, as kids are left behind, get booted out of their homes, turn into prostitutes, are abused, and run away. Though it has been making efforts to overcome this dire situation, the Russian system has yet to completely control it, as many young children (ages 8-16) continue to be swept into the abyss.

    When this film was made, authorities estimated that some 30,000 children were living on the streets and railway stations of Moscow. The Children of Leningradsky concentrates on a dozen or so children living in the Moscow train station Leningradsky. Panhandling from strangers and sleeping among the rush of commuters, their wants are minimal. "We need some heat, food, a little money and nothing more," says one, forgetting that his daily diet also includes an unhealthy dose of vodka, cigarettes and glue sniffing. "When it is worst, we try to make money for food by prostitution," admits another.

    Police brutality is a daily reality for the children of Leningradsky. The film captures one incident where the police patrol beats one of the street children and smears an entire tube of glue into his hair and onto his face. Ironically, it is by sniffing glue fumes that these children (at least for a little while) are able escape the unforgiving world around them. It is a life of fleeting possibilities and danger.

    The Children of Leningradsky conveys what life is like for these homeless children as they plan their day around "best begging hours." Originally part of a project to bring money and aid to homeless youth, Polak and Celinski started filming this documentary as a non-profit initiative. The film has helped focus attention on this matter; since it was made, Russian authorities have stepped up their efforts to reduce homelessness in Moscow, though it's still a serious problem in other cities.

    Death sometimes crosses the paths of the children of Leningradsky, directly and indirectly. One group of kids explains how they were badgered for 48 hours by police after another child was murdered, even though they weren't anywhere near the crime scene. In another, far more emotional scene, a group of homeless children wail at the funeral of a pretty 14-year-old girl. Neverless, Misha, the boy who was discarded by his father, remains optimistic: "God believes in people and helps them. He loves everyone, even bad people, not just Russians. He even loves Chechnyans. But most of all, He loves children."

    About the filmmakers: Born in Katowice, Poland, Hanna Polak studied acting before beginning her studies at the Moscow School of Cinematography. In 1997 she founded a charity organization in order to help the underprivileged children of Russia. Andrzej Celinski began his career in the theater, and directed several successful plays in Poland and the Czech Republic. He has won the Main Award of the Czech Theater Festival in Prague.


    Zeitgeist : 2007



    What does Christianity, 911 and The Federal Reserve all have in common?
    A conspiracy? conspiracy my ass, conspiracy can also be what the TV says and YOU believe.

    Sharkwater is about the indiscriminate killing of sharks, mostly for their fins. It also explains the disasters created by long line fishing, and how international waters allow people to do whatever they please. This has not only a dramatic effect on sharks, but the whole ocean's eco-system.

    Put simply: no sharks = lots of fish don't get eaten = fish eat more plancton = oxygen levels from the oceans drop dramatically = men get extinct...

    This is also a must watch, about all the products that are made for throw away in some months, just to "keep up" the economy and more bs. All the first world countries are living a lie.
    http://www.rtve.es/noticias/20110104...s/392498.shtml there is some spanish but it's almost all in english.

    A must watch for everyone who likes movies. History of the american cinema until the 70's by a master like Martin Scorsese.
    It is 3 parts of 80 minutes each.

    Alex...you believe everyone should watch the atrocities that occur to thousands of animals world-wide for the purpose of food, sport, entertainment or clothes. Right?

    I can see what you're saying. People DO need to know what happens in these disgusting slaughter houses (which is why I don't eat take away meat).

    However,

    People are so touchy about the subject, even to go as far as becoming vegetarians after watching the link you posted above! Well fuck me, how about people doing the same for a video about atrocities happening in the world right now? How about boycotting Israel for the shit it's done and currently doing?

    How about I show you videos of them being used for slaughtering or entertainment. Sounds familiar doesn't it? Or does it only apply to Animals?


    PS> sorry for the late reply, just saw your link now.

    I think those videos and documentaries you say should also be made and i watch as many of those as i can. The other day i was watching one of a guy from Burma who tapes all the conflicts that happened there just some several years ago, and other countries in the world do shit to stop it.
    Zeitgeist is a pretty good one also, it's more about the problems in the first world but this also affects poor countries.

    War Photographer, by Christian Frei. It's one of my favorite documentaries of all time. It's about this man James Nachtwey who goes all over the world taking pictures of the worst things you can see in war and poor countries in general. It changed my view of the profession of photographer and journalist. Really a MUST WATCH.
    I can't find any link to watch online, here is the trailer, but you guys can download it in torrent or ares for sure.


    The U.S. vs. John Lennon is another good one. Not about music or anything, just the public figure of Lennon and all his problems with the power/system.
