The last documentary file I have watched is " social dilemma ", it was produced by Netflix, it was released last September. It is talking about social media and how they impact. I don`t use social media, sometimes I use you tube, however, I have felt shocked after watching this movie. If you want to help your self to go far away from social media then watch this movie. Thanks a lot!
I completely agree with you Rihaneta. The new way to communicate has two sides of coin. On one hand, we are able to connect or to discover the news easier, faster. However, on other hand, we are loosing our ability to read deep and strong literature, we are loosing our ability to ponder. Unfortunately, we have the same trash not only on our planet but in our minds, too.

Discussion on the effect of plastic waste to marine life is long overdue. Aquatic life is always in danger by the action of man. It is high time we start considering other living creatures on this planet as well

I rewatched an old documentary named Ocean last week. It doesn't take any point of view of the filmmaker, but simply show you how marine animals are living in their natural habitat. After I read this text, I imagine that those marine animals might be killed by the plastic we dumped into the ocean, which makes me feel guilty and realize that we have to act together to make the planet better.
I would like to maintain your thought about what we can do together to make our planet better. For instance, my family and I stopped using the plastic packets.

I would like to tell about new documentary on Netflix. It's name the social drama. This movie about social media and how they impact for us. Frankly speaking, evereday I use instagram, youtube, twitter. I spend a lot of time for serfing on Internet. I think, It's so bad because I don't have time for me or my family. It's dangrerous trand. But on the other hand, we able to use social media some different. For instance, we can study or met with interesting people. In conclusion, I recomend to wath this movie.

Hi everyone, I am a new user on this website. I find it, very efficient. Well, to answer the question, I love watching documentaries, especially with my kids. We watch ones a lot and whatever the documentary. The last documentary I watched is about the environment. It was called "Tomorrow". The two filmmakers are French. They tell about differents ways to have a less consommation and to product less and better. It was very interesting to see that there are a lot of people in many countries worldwide who make the planet better
I'm looking forward to watching this documentary too.

This is the right question, I would like to say because I love documentary films. Especially about nature. I think the BBC makes the best documentary films. I watched them a lot. The last one was "Planet Earth". Awesome movie about our planet. Each episode shows a particular part of mother-nature: rivers, oceans, mountains, deserts, jungles and so. Every series strike your imagination with an unbelievably interesting story about different species in their habitat. All this looks so realistic, I really had that feeling like I stood near the operators or dived with them in the depth of water. And, of course, the problem of pollution was on the table in each episode. Unfortunately, we make a huge (and horrible, telling the truth) impact on the planet. Every day we kill our big home with rubbish, emissions, and forest clearance. It's hard to swallow pill, but sometimes, it seems, it would be better that humans don't exist at all. Honestly, I'm not a panic kind of guy but I can't imagine how we can manage all this damage we made.
