I love documentaries and i would recommend "A Plastic Ocean" because it´s very important and urgent think about our model of life based in consumerism.

I have enjoyed the reading and I would recommend the Salgado documentary on how he and his family attempted to return to live a very desertic area in Brasil by planting many new trees

I would like to recommend a documantary called "Minimalism" that is about what the term the minimalism is, how we can live more likely the lifestyle, also what we have benefits after change our lifestyle. I think live minimal are related to reduce using plastic. If we want to save our world, we have to change our habbits. You can watch this documantary on Netflix Platform. I hope you enjoy.

I would like to recommend a documentary called "La sal de la tierra" or "The Salt of the Earth" in English, which is very dramatic because it stress on the negative effects of human acts in every place, at every step. The film was made with the Brazilian photographer Andrés Salgado. They reflect on the international conflict, famine, migration and other problems on the five continents. Salgado makes us think that the supposed evolution that the world has had during the last 40 years, is nothing more than the setback of humanity. Finally, the documentary is on Netflix.

Hello everybody. I am so glad to have a chance study in "britishcouncil". There are a lot of documentary films. Today I watched "Red balloon" I would advise to see that film.
