The Bridge is a 2006 documentary film by Eric Steel that consists of the results of one year's filming of the Golden Gate Bridge in 2004, which captured a number of suicides, and additional filming of family and friends of some of the identified people who had thrown themselves from the bridge.
The film was inspired by an article titled "Jumpers", written by Tad Friend, that appeared in The New Yorker magazine in 2003. Friend writes that "Survivors often regret their decision in midair, if not before", and suicide survivor Ken Baldwin explains “I instantly realized that everything in my life that I’d thought was unfixable was totally fixable—except for having just jumped.”
Children Underground is a 2001 documentary film directed by Edet Belzberg.
In an effort to increase the Romania's work force, former communist leader Nicolae Ceauşescu outlawed contraception and abortion in 1966. Thousands of unwanted children were placed in state orphanages where they faced terrible conditions. With the fall of Communism, many children moved onto the streets. Some were from the orphanages. Others were runways from impoverished families. Today there are 20,000 children living on the streets while the resources for sheltering these homeless youths are severely limited.
Children Underground follows the story of five street children, aged eight to sixteen who live in a subway station in Bucharest, Romania. The street kids are encountered daily by commuting adults, who pass them by in the station as they starve, swindle, and steal, all while searching desperately for a fresh can of paint to get high with.
they all bend or lean towards 1 drastic movement, for instance, watch the movie foods inc. I bet you wont eat meat that day lol. I think documentaries are good but often brutalize one subject far beyond its real impact
100% agree with you on the shock value that is at times required for a movement to spark. It just seems like the sole purpose of documentaries...
The universe one, where it all began etc.
The Civil War by Ken Burns
American Movie- about an average guy making a low budget horror movie
lol saw that one too!
I don't even know if it would count as a documentary or just sensationalism, but when VH1 had a documentary called "Sexploitation on the Set" I watched it every time it came on and would love to own a copy of it but I can't find it anywhere.
It's about the rap music industry and how they exploit their female dancers and video models sexually, and it had a bunch of interviews of these girls and what they thought, and what kind of stuff happened backstage.
Zeitgeist Addendum, easier to watch than the original... will open your mind...
