We’re here to help with five brand new docos you need to watch now—some of them are even on Netflix!
Before The Flood
Most of us are well aware that global warming is a thing, but in case you’re not a believer, Leo DiCaprio will have you convinced otherwise by the time you finish Before The Flood. It’s not all depressing, though, as Leo will explain there are a few key things each and every one of us can do to stop climate change in its tracks. #savingtheworld
When Amanda Knox moved to Italy to study she never expected to land in prison for a crime she didn’t commit, but that’s exactly what happened. A fun year away turned into four years in an Italian prison and a truck load of unwanted attention. The new Making A Murderer, Amanda Knox will leave you questioning legal systems around the world as well as the media’s impact on it.
Under The Gun
Gun deaths and mass shootings are on the rise in America but the gun debate is still no closer to being won, c’mon America! Led by US journo, Katie Couric, Under The Gun takes a closer look at the arguments on each side of the story while remaining firmly on the opposing side. It will make you seriously question humanity.
13th will make your blood crawl. Directed by AvaDuVernay (Selma), the doco explores the idea that slavery never ended in the United States on the basis that it’s continuing on through the criminal justice system and mass incarceration. Prepare for your jaw to drop at some of the facts and figures.
Audrie & Daisy
Audrie & Daisy will make you never want to have a daughter. It follows the harrowing stories of two underage girls who are sexually assaulted, only to have the crimes recorded on camera and shared with the world. It takes a long, hard look at the culture of bullying that’s become so present on social media.
We’re massive fans of a good doco. Have you check out this list yet?
