Who doesn’t love a fascinating documentary on a late Sunday afternoon? I don’t think I will ever get tired of learning about our home. I am constantly amazed by the variations of life and how responsive our Earth really is. Below are some of my favorite documentaries
that have opened my eyes to what’s happening in our global community.
1. Home, 2009
A written statement from one of the creators of the film-
“We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth’s climate.
- The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being.For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film.HOME has been made for you : share it! And act for the planet.” You can watch the film on YouTube here.
2. Before the Flood, 2016
This is the newest of the three documentaries, which means it’s also the most up to date for news. It follows actor, Leonardo DiCaprio as a United Nations Messenger on Climate Change while he narrates his experiences around the world to witness these events first hand and determine the severity of the situation for himself. The events are much more devastating than he ever could’ve ever imagined.

3. Chevron vs. the Amazon, 2016
I have been focused on forest devastation in the Amazon and stumbled upon this film! There are so many outrageous things that happen in the most sacred of places. The Amazon is the heart of the Earth and without it we would be living a dramatically different lifestyle. Americans use gas every day but few really know what had to be done in order for that full tank of gas.
