We don’t know about you but during lockdown we were watching TV more than ever before! We watched (and rewatched) some truly moving conscious documentaries and we thought we should share them with you.
The True Cost
This unsettling documentary explores the impact of fashion on people and the planet and makes you reconsider the way you shop and the things you buy. For decades now the price of clothing has been decreasing, while the human and environmental costs have grown drastically. This groundbreaking doc lets you see behind the curtain of the untold story of the fashion industry and asks us to consider who really pays the price for our clothing?
Before the Flood
Filled with stars, this doc takes a stark look at how climate change is affecting our environment and what society can do (and in the large part is not doing) to prevent the demise of endangered species, ecosystems and native communities across the World. This doc is on a mission change the minds of climate-change deniers.
Western India has undergone unprecedented, unregulated industrialisation, most evident in its numerous textile factories. Moving through the corridors and bowels of the enormous and disorientating structure of a textile factory in Gujarat, this doc takes you on a journey to a place of awful dehumanising physical labour and intense hardship, provoking the viewer to think about persistent pre-industrial working conditions and the huge divide between first World and developing countries.
Coral reefs around the world are vanishing at an unprecedented rate. For those on the ground, little doubt exists that carbon emissions are to blame for climate change and in turn the warming waters resulting in coral bleaching and finally coral death. A team of divers, photographers and scientists set out on a thrilling (and devastating) ocean adventure to discover why and to reveal this shocking underwater mystery to the world.
