What documentary films would you recommend?

I strongly recommend to watch "A world of games". This documentary is on Netflix. It's about the rol of the games in human lifes. Also, it show us the games which are played in different cultures. So, you can discover games that may you don't know before. 

On another hand, about the plastic issue which is this paper about, I think that we know that is a big problem but the authorities don't take action on the matter. They need to communicate better about what we can do to fix the problem or to, at least, reduce it. Maybe more advertisement on the tv, and also they have to find a way to penalize people who don't recycle things or dump plastic things into the ocean.

Hey, I would recommend a documentary series called 'Our Great National Parks,' narrated by Barack Obama. It's a series of stories about the lives of animals in some popular national parks of America. Besides the landscapes and stunning nature, viewers can witness the reality of wildlife and enjoy the narration by the former president.

Hey everyone,

It's no secret that waste plastic poses a significant threat to our environment. Its visible presence is a constant reminder of the danger it poses. Fortunately, the solution to this problem is quite simple, provided we have the intention to act. Implementing measures such as recycling and reusing plastic, as well as exploring alternative materials like glass and paper, can make a significant difference in reducing plastic waste.

However, it's crucial to acknowledge that while plastic pollution receives considerable media attention, there's another form of pollution that often goes overlooked: nuclear waste. The lack of public awareness surrounding this issue is a serious problem that needs to be addressed.

Nuclear waste pollution is an enduring concern with long-term consequences. Proper management and disposal of nuclear waste are essential to prevent harmful effects on both the environment and human health. It's imperative that we shift our focus towards understanding and finding effective solutions for this issue.

I recommend a film that teaches us not to throw waste and take care of animals and keep the oceans clean and that we need to recycle trash and that machines can use plastic as fuel and that 300 million plastic bags are thrown every year and that everyone plays a role and only 8 million are recycled from 300 million just like I said everyone plays a role

We have our national traveler. He has probably been in every corners of the world. He claims that since we have our natural fossil fuels, we should to use them because it is cheaper for us. It's probably better for our planet than implementing modern technology, we don't know what the consequences may be at the future. Electric cars use energy from large power plants, and in the future we will have problems with storing electric batteries.
But if he is far from big cities and far from civilisation like inside Amazonian forest, he is both sad and angry that there is more and more plastics and sheet metal.
And besides, this man creates wonderful travel documentaries: "Barefoot across the World" and he doesn't like if the government wants to give too many restrictions in society's behavior.
You may think I'm going against present trend, but did you anywhere consider a different opinion?

I would recommend a documentary film about Hayao Miyazaki, which delves into his filmmaking process and provides insight into his artistic style and life perspectives. If you enjoy watching animation, especially Ghibli movies, you won't get bored.

The last documentary film that I watched was 'The Tinder Swindler,' and I am willing to recommend it. The narrative is about a guy who swindles women out of money by telling them about his love and temporary difficulties through the modern dating application, Tinder.
