A documentary about the Lancaster Witch trails. It is disturbing and un-settling story of a child who’s involvement with a witchcraft trail had long lasting effects.
It is the best biography of Henri Toulouse Lautrec and by extension of the Moulin Rouge. Brimming with enthusiasm and genuine affection for Lautec, it looks at the good and the bad but always embraces Lautrec’s joie de vivre attitude. It’s also the only documentary not viewable on youtube.
A short documentary that looks at the aftermath of the Rwandan genocide eight years on. Presented by Fergal Keane who was one of the reporters who filmed some of the worst footage of the geneocide, he returns to see the work of AVEGA (Association of Widows of the Genocide). Uplifting although it is impossible not to be horrified by the content and legacy of the genocide.
A wonderful documentary about the many emotions that animals are capable of expressing.
A very insightful and informed documentary about one of Britain’s worst murder cases. The documentary follows the chain of events with interviews of family members, media and police involved in the investigation. It predominantly focuses on the police interviews and features the interview tapes which is chilling. Not very pleasant but interesting to see what went wrong.
This documentary is not about Virginia Tech, in fact it mentions very little about the events that took place there. The documentary focuses solely on Seung-Hui Cho and his life before the shooting. It’s sensitively in it’s approach and doesn’t sensationalize any of the events.
Arguably Herog’s most famous documentary. It tells the story of Timothy Treadwell; an eccentric outcast who prefers to live with wild bears in Alaska with unfortunate results. At times you will relate with Treadwell and at others you will be shocked by his questionable choices and mindset.
An interesting documentary although I have mixed feelings about it’s content or even it’s intent. Zoo focuses on the infamous Mr Hands or Washington horse case where a man died after having a sexual encounter with a horse (thankfully only the audio is featured in the doc). The documentary features pro bestiality interviews and then people’s disgusted reactions. It’s a bit of a mess and pointless because doesn’t definitively say where it stands on the subject.
a revealing documentary about the Hollywood icon paints a rare portrait of Monroe, based on tapes made during psychoanalysis sessions in the months prior to her untimely death.
