Free documentaries

Toevallig is het aanbod van films deze week prima op tv, maar normaal gesproken staat dat ding bij mij 's avonds meer uit dan aan.
Ben je het bladeren door de gids beu en wil je toch naar iets kijken, ga dan eens naar http://www.freedocumentaries.org/.
Wat dacht je bijvoorbeeld van:
The Israeli Lobby, The War on Democracy, Century of Self Episode 1: Happiness Machines, Super Size Me, The Road To Guantanamo, en Fahrenheit 9/11.
De eerste documentaire is zelfs te bekijken in het Nederlands!

Er zitten absolute aanraders tussen, ook heel goed bruikbaar in het onderwijs.

Op de site zeggen ze over zichzelf het volgende:
At freedocumentaries.org we believe strongly that in order to have a true democracy, there has to be a free flow of easily available information. Unfortunately, many important perspectives, opinions and facts do not make it to our televisions or cinemas (you can watch movies in our media category if you want to know why).
For this reason we decided to start freedocumentaries.org, a site where anyone with an internet connection can watch a movie and educate themselves or simply explore another perspective whenever they want.
Providing films free not only allows anyone to watch a film but it also allows curious people who think they may disagree with a filmmaker to watch a film without worrying that they are giving money to someone who's views they don't agree with.
Everyone that watches a film at freedocumentaries.org should learn something, whether it be a new perspective on a topic or simply understanding how others think. We can say that the vast majority of people that watch our films are glad they do so.
