Was wondering what some of your favorite documentaries are, with an emphasis on social justice oriented issues....but any other suggestions are still welcome too! Gonna have some time to watch movies again soon, figured who better to ask for a recommendation than the fine folks from babble!
To start it off my fav's are (in no particular order)
Kanehsatake:270 years of resistance (NFB, Alanis Obomsawin)
Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the media (NFB)
The Agronomist (Johnathan Demme), Really interesting film about Haiti and Jean Dominique...
Hearts And Minds: really great doc from the 70's about vietnam war, one of the best anti war films of all time!
Peace, Propaganda and the Promised Land: About american influence in israel/palestine
Discordia: about Netanyahu's visit to concordia university and the protests around it.
