Documentaries can be a very powerful communication tool, affecting public opinion and triggering serious debates on various matters - from the way we live, the way we run our politics to the way we ruin our environment. Two documentaries are coming our way this fall and they certainly look like they will make a lasting impact.
The first documentary called 'This changes everything' was inspired by Naomi Klein's international non-fiction bestseller. Directed by Avi Lewis, it was filmed over 211 days in nine countries and five continents over four years, trying to bring the audience closer to the global problem of climate change. The film, narrated by Klein, depicts seven powerful stories of communities living on the world's front lines. Klein is asking us - what if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we'll ever get to build a better world?
Louie Psihoyos, who already brought us the Oscar-winning documentary 'The Cove' on exposing shocking animal abuse in a cove near Taijii, Japan, is now back with 'Racing Extinction'. As the name already suggests, he again gathered a team of artists and activists in order to show the world never-before-seen images exposing issues of endangered species and mass extinction.
'Racing Exticntion', which is bound to change the way we see the world and our role within it, will see its worldwide broadcast premiere on Discovery on December 2nd at 9pm ET/PT.
