Inspiring movies to watch
I’m not really into books, more of a video guy. And i’m a big fan of watching documentaries. Mainly the ones that are about problems in the world, food, fashion, plastic, consumerism, bank systems etc. This is huge source of inspiration for my projects. I get triggered by this and to try and come up with a solution. Over the years i’ve watched quite a few good and bad ones. In this post I will share the ones i’ve seen, liked and think are relevant to watch.
I’m sure you have seen some of them as well. And i’m always up for seeing new ones. If you have seen a good one that I should watch post it in the comments and press the heart on others to filter good ones ❤️
– True cost ⚡️
– Wild Wild Country ⚡️
Mission blue – a documentary about the great oceanographer Sylvia Earle, such a beautiful and inspiring movie about how the oceans changed in the last 50 years.
Chasing ice – “the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet” by photographing how the big glaciers of our planet are quickly melting down.
Catching the sun – not very beautifully taken, but effective in the content. About the solar energy: a clean energy, a way to decrease unemployment, a huge investment for the countries (like China..).
Thanks for sharing your movies, good idea!
The Smog of The Sea – Incredibly shot, beautiful music, and impressively relaxing. Follows a research cruise as they explore the world of microplastics.
Plastic Paradise – Documentary following a reporter as she demystifies the idea of a “Great Pacific Garbage Patch,” explores plastic, BPA, and their history, and more.
A few months ago a came across this documentary about japanese woodworking and I love it! Hope you guys like it too
Building Without Nails The Genius of Japanese Carpentry
Nice list!!, Thanks for share!
I also recomend “Waste Land”, a British-Brazilian documentary film that mix art, human collaboration, recyclable materials and transformation.
I send a big hug for all the community of this amazing project!
Before the Flood is also worth checking out
Great list! Lots on there that I still need to watch.
In terms of the ‘bigger picture’ I’ve heard that Hypernormalisation is very good, if a little out there. I’m yet to watch it myself though.
University of California has been launching series of interesting short video’s on environmental topics which I found quite interesting! There’s still 2 video’s to be launched but I liked the first 4 a lot.
All videos can be seen here:
The most toxic place in America. Reveals the arrogance & stupidity of man.
The most hated man in Britain. “Interesting” perspective of a fearful business tycoon. Amoral & influential, Nicholas van Hoogstraten is alleged to be the biggest private landholder in Zimbabwe. Definitely a case of knowing the mentality of people you may encounter and be competing against.
I agree with you, Mission Blue was such and inspiration and I would highly recommend watching Chasing coralfrom the same creators of Chasing Ice, by the name you could guess it talks about the importance of conserving coral reefs due to their critical status, with an amazing footage and a very emotional plot.
Greetings from the Maldives!
Frozen planet! It’s the same as planet earth but is about the north and south pole. It’s on netflix.
Hey @davehakkens! I’m really glad you enjoyed it.
I’m loving following what you guys have come up with for Precious Plastics 3, it’s brilliant!
I’m excited to integrate recycled plastic products into my own business when I move home next year.
Also, everyone, the new series of Blue Planet II from the BBC highlights the overabundance and effects of marine plastics. I may be a biased brit, but everyone David Attenborough has done is excellent!
Absolutely love it.
Be careful with this “guru” Osho. Drugs, sexual promiscuity, lie and false… And money, money, money – only profit as a personal goal.
I don’t think it’s on Netflix anymore, but Gaslands is one of my favorites. It’s about fracking across the United States. While natural gas is being projected as the new “greener” energy source, the method of getting it–fracking, is the opposite of environmentally friendly. It’s worth the watch
Hey everyone! I love ‘I Am’ (2010), it’s an American documentary film written, directed, and narrated by Tom Shadyac.
Shadyac is the comedy director behind Jim Carrey movies like Bruce Almighty. The film asks the question: “What is wrong with the world, and what can we do about it?”, and explores Shadyac’s personal journey after a bicycle accident in 2007 that led him to the answers “the nature of humanity”, “the world’s ever-growing addiction to materialism”, and “human connections”.
Then there’s the documentary ‘The Corporation’ (2003)
“”The Corporation” is a must-see documentary for anyone concerned about the enormous influence of multinational corporations on just about every facet of our existence.”</i>
– Brian Costello – Full review
“In great detail, this Oscar-winning documentary explains how the same amendment that ended slavery after the Civil War also declared corporations to be “people” in the 19th century and how, if corporations are indeed people, they most closely resemble psychotics in their regard for others and the world around them.”
