We have a dedicated thread for movies, series and short films but not about documentaries and i think they deserve one.

If we happen to already have one and i just missed it or the moderation thinks this fits in another thread, pls just delete.

I start with this

I have recommended that one several times on old EC. I would watch a few Herzog documentaries before that, though: Happy People (A Year in the Taiga), Little Dieter Needs to Fly and Encounters At the End of the World.
Not because they are thematically connected or anything like that, but because they are easier and they can give you a sense of what to expect, so you are less likely to turn off after 20 minutes of The Act of Killing.

Though, maybe other people just don't have that problem and I'm being too cautious...

There are many awesome (entertaining and cringy awesome, not well made awesome) documentaries about videogames.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwJlErJJxvc is one.

>Filmmaker Robin Benger covered 14 wars in 24 countries as a veteran TV producer but nothing prepared him for the discovery that war was being waged in the basement of his own home.

>He discovered that "first person shooter" games, and violence-centred gaming, are taking over as the entertainment of choice for a whole generation of (mostly) teenage males. Entering into that world, he began filming in cyber-cafes, games manufacturers‚ conventions, and mega gaming tournaments, even tracking down the designer of the very game causing him so much friction with his own son.


I also highly recommend House of Numbers.
It's some top tier aids denialism documentary.

As a side note: A while ago i saw a documentary about some Russian "vigilante" group who handed out fake speeding tickets and stuff like that to people who didn't behave on the streets. They got beaten up and nearly killed many times but i can't remember the name of the documentary or the group.

I love how I'm not the only American saying this, and how profoundly butthurted it must make the Ukrainians here feel.

It is true. All he said in that video is true. And I tell you such things about my country, and you don't believe, and I feel like a starving Belorussian telling you of hard times and long lines and decay and people being disappeared under Soviets, and some idiot from another country telling me "oh no but Russia is stronk they give power to the workers" and so on.

Well no such a thing is not true. I don't own a car. I don't own a home. I have been hassled by the police. Because of being drunk, twice I have probably almost been shot, once with a cop and once knocking on the wrong door at 2am to use a phone. You get nickel and dimed and ripped off everywhere, there is no freedom, the people themselves have no actual say about policy or the direction of the country, it becomes worse and worse every day and the lower class grows and even in our schools now we have armed cops. Just imagine, if Soviet police stood inside schools with rifles, as pupils are forced by the school to take mind numbing drugs if they are not a cog https://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/04/12/cps-takes-ohio-child-after-parents-disagree-with-his-schools-adhd-diagnosis
https://breggin.com/school-calls-child-services-on-parents-who-take-child-off-of-ritalin/ and what really matters is being taught the master-slave structure of this society, and even in school they criminalize you for not following orders. It is why public schooled kids which is most of this country act like such idiots it's almost like they're not real, or are incomplete people. Anyone who has been to America and dealt with Americans knows that incredibly creepy, eerie feel as it's all knice and smiles and apple pies on the surface but spend more than a few days there and you start noticing the fakeness, the sense of corruption and evil looming within or just out of the corner of your vision, until another one gives you a fake smile as he tells you some lie or superficial pleasantry.

The country is rotting within. It is absolutely NOT free. You can get fined or arrested just for fishing or hunting without a license. You make fun of the British (as you well should) for TV license but http://www.wafb.com/story/25303063/bunkie-man-arrested-for-fishing-without-a-license-resisting-arrest
I ask, do you get arrested for fishing in your country? And the courts are a joke. Like everything else it is run by money, and sometimes connections. You a cop? Work a desk job for a week and get acquitted no matter what https://dailygazette.com/article/2011/02/11/0211_albcop that guy choked and pushed his gf down a flight of stairs then used his police used weapon and held a gun to her head making her beg for her life. It was in the news, and silently went away with an acquittal, like all these things. The police here, you would not even believe.

And the country is worse off than Europeans by far. In fact it is ingrained in Americans by the lottery. Every time there's a powerball it keeps the proles in line and thinking "I'm just a multi millionaire in waiting some day I'll hit that jackpot!" and they slave away until they die with no benefits, with practical robbery from funeral services, leaving little behind.

We have neither political nor real economic freedom here. It is just a big, fat, bloated dead cow, and nobody notices with the shiny advertising paint thrown over the corpse and some Febreze misted in the air to cover up the stench of rot and blood. And I would leave this shithole, but I'm too poor to even consider it. Most of us just do not have the cash to even travel around, let alone afford to actually move. It is a pathetic, morbid pantomime of all the supposed ideals and freedoms, of settling the West and living and making it on your own, like watching a ventriloquist puppeteering the corpse he stole.

Oh and I forgot to add, because I was distracted by the secret code of police like they are just another gang who act above their own law, is the courts. If you ever have to deal with them (and odds are, you will at some point) and you're not rich with a fancy lawyer to contest everything, then you get stuck with a public defender. The PD will almost always fuck you way harder than if you simply ignored them. Try watching American court videos. Watch as people flip out after realizing their PD was incompetent or they were lied to, and they do something stupid like no contest and the judge ends up throwing 20 years at you.

I do not even remotely feel like I am in a free country. Maybe way out in the boonies there is some marginal freedom if only because the long arm of the law and the State can't reach you there so easily, but now with technology advances they can, and you all know the rampant abuse of privacy from my country. USA is shit! SHIIIIT!

Especially just imagine, you are actually living in a country where feudalism is essentially allowed. There is no fishing or hunting on the lord's land. Everything here is banned and illegal or potentially illegal. It is being trained more and more to be a predictable, robotic society, and between the advertising and datamining and the school indoctrination programs you're fucked since age 3 years old. In fact, I almost cannot even imagine what such a surreal society looks like, where you can work with dignity and own your own home, where your voice matters in politics, where you have economic advantage, where you have actual safety nets or any system where the state itself cares about you instead of doing shit like setting up casinos to get more taxes as their economic revitalization plan, where a man can freely speak his mind and do as he pleases and simply wander the land as a natural human being without constantly being hassled, interrogated, and possibly shot. https://www.msn.com/en-us/movies/celebrity/ving-rhames-says-police-held-him-at-gunpoint-in-his-own-home-after-a-neighbor-reported-a-robbery/ar-BBLaJVy?OCID=ansmsnnews11
Not even in your own home are you safe from secret police. Just imagine, living in mortal fear that some asshole will SWAT you or police find the wrong house or for whatever reason flashbang you at fucking 5:00am and shoot your dogs. Can you even imagine? Just imagine that. Just imagine living in a fucking country where if you have a dog your biggest mortal fear is that the cops will be near you and shoot your dog. Imagine being afraid of that every day, that a cop will see your dog and shoot it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVAhOLbQEHM Fuck this society and fuck this country.

Very good doc right here, not because of the theme because of a family that they follow. China has a policy of restricting internal migration, to keep main cities from growing too much and creating slums. But of course for this they would have to create enough jobs in the countryside too, otherwise people will migrate illegally to the big cities anyway, and live in a completely illegal situation there, and this is the case with this family.

I think it makes sense to also share podcasts ITT, a documentaries and podcasts thread. BBC radio has this very nice series of podcasts called "in our time", the host Melvyn Bragg invites 2 or 3 specialists about a certain area of contemporary relevance and asks them many questions. As it is expected, the quality of the podcast varies a lot depending on the theme and the guests, but usually things about british history (or history in general) are better. This one here talks about the nation-state today, but basically they talk about England and UK, very good stuff:

Why does the BBC always ruin their documentaries with artificial drama? They could just pick other people for their docus. People that are capable of handling the situations they are put in.
Sure, it won't always work (unless staged) but as it is right now every single BBC documentary has this kind of drama in it.

No. 7447
I agree. Problem is that these kinds of documentaries are intended to essentially be the equivalent of a zoo. The drama is there so that people watching it can go 'oh look at how weird these people are' and gawk at that rather than the documentary actually trying to showcase a different culture's experience with the world. If they had the latter goal, they'd find a Turkologist who could understand enough to show things in an intelligent and respectful manner, and while it's not the most enormous field in English-speaking circles, it does exist and in a pinch they could still probably find a Turkish Turkologist who spoke English for the job.
No. 7449
Precisely. Good counter examples are the works of Werner Herzog. They aren't documentaries per sé but Herzog knows where to look at then make you see it truly for what it is rather than showing you what he thinks you want to see or what he wants to get across. Case in point: Grizzly Man, Into the Abyss, Little Dieter Needs to Fly, Happy People - A Year in the Taiga, Encounters at the End of the World, The Great Ecstasy of the Woodcarver Steiner.

Well true, they don't want to understand the culture, they just want to look at some weird thing and gigle, because they are uncultured and not very smart. Since we're not an ethnicity that put on pedestal for any political agenda she wont show respect at all and I assure you those people are very patient yet she made them complain about disrespect.

I almost never seen her asking about traditions and lifestyle. For example since yörüks usually dont own a fridge they don't stockpile too much food and it makes them willing to share even to some random person that never seen before. For example she could notice that, but she decided to go for le women rights maymay and she get pretty dissapointed when it turns out they dont give a shit if you wear headscarf or not. I extremely doubt she takes full advantage of city life by the way.

It's not about certain nationality, it's about mindset though. For example when I was in switzerland my family received a guest from homeland and she was typical if I drink and wear mini skirt I'm paragon of civilization type and she thought if she knows a couple cheese name she just gets the whole swiss culture. She was regularly complaining why I don't go full western (I'm not living like döner slicing bydlo I assure you, neither my family) and how bigot I am et cetera.
Anyway I brought her a couple native swiss one of them was from graubünden and they were arguing should women stick to the traditional roles or not, of course my super civilized guest autistic screeched and how backwards they are and she is more western than them (she literally said it) when they said their culture can't be adapted just by merely a few cloth and whatnot and it's an insult to dumb down their culture to such lowly level. As you guys can guess since she was not enjoyed with this 'culture' she adapted she immidietly stopped being such an occidentalist and go full orientalist, rant about colonial people in angry manner.

It was pure cringe and it was perfect proof for me that people who think culture could be understood and adapted in mere minutes was extremly stupid, and people who had no culture can't understand other cultures either. It was pure cringe though, I wish I didn't see that.

And your country is about fuck me times bigger, has over 9000 regions with them own laws. I heard that federal law isnt that important as state law or regional law. Some are liberal, some are conservative, some are ... Burgers. I've seen so many facettes of your country, the worst and the best.

He just came off as way less competent and more fake and idiotic in that interview IMO.

It's not really a great documentary, but it's the only one on the topic I know of and for those who aren't ones to pick up a big book and prefer to watch a documentary instead (nothing wrong with that mind you, lots of things I'd do the same for) it's a good quick option and it's on a subject you won't often hear about because not many people think of New Mexico when they think of the Civil War and fewer recognise it as one of the most decisive logistical victories of the war, even if in raw scale it was rather small because it crippled Texan military capacity in the Far West and after Glorieta Pass, no major Texan offensive was made in the theatre for the rest of the war. It's also more relevant than you might think because of the Californian gold supply being vital to funding the war for the Union (~1/4 of the cost of the war was covered by it).

Swiss Doku from 1998 about Japanese concept cars.

It's in German, but fuck it, they show hilarious concept cars from Japan, and I would buy them all.
All through the video they say that Japanese cars looked and look bland and only focus on future and function, but maybe that's propaganda to please the German viewers.
If found nearly every car exiting, ultra-futuristic, noble or cute. The cyber feel is with them.
Even the opening scenes are still more future than a ride through our cities now ;_;

Here's a classic British documentary on the life of Steeplejack Fred Dibnah from a time before health and safety. He became famous following this thanks to his personality and interests in all things industrial:

If that doesn't spark your interest or you have trouble with a Lancashire accent then here are a couple of documentaries closely tied to the Vietnam War:

>The Battle of Long Tan (2006)

The first is a documentary on the Battle of Long Tan one of the great battles of ANZAC military history and one where they were very nearly overrun. I normally get bored of on the ground reports but this is definitely something you can lose yourself in. No over-dramatic reenactments or gimmicks, just a gritty retelling of a shitty day.

>Fog Of War: Eleven Lessons From The Life Of Robert S. Mcnamara

This covers not only the Vietnam War but also the life of Mcnamara with some explanation of the US actions in firebombing Japanese cities, the Cuban Missile Crisis and the US car industry. Special mention should be made of the excellent soundtrack by Philip Glass that ties it all together and Mcnamara giving the interview of his life to defend himself for the history books.

I didn't find it to be a MGTOW or misogynist documentary.

Rather it talked about how one of the causes of Elliot's shooting was his dysfunctional family and warped upbringing that led to a warped view of the world.
Also, where did you get the information that Peter Rodger was jewish >>10706 ?
No. 10749 Kontra
Also, the guy who created the documentary was just a guy that received Elliot's leaked emails because he had talked about Elliot a few times before; he wasn't part of a large studio or a professional filmmaker.
To be sure, he could have omitted certain emails while emphasizing others to push a certain agenda, and he uses emotional manipulation in terms of the music in the background, video effects, etc. to direct the viewer towards specific emotions, but this behavior exists in more professional documentaries as well.

Often I prefer amateur documentaries to professional ones as it is easier to convince people that an amateur documentary has a certain agenda or has certain flaws, as opposed to professional documentaries which have the advantage of the status of the filmmaker and the expertise of a "professional documentary" accompanying them.

Podcast explaining how germany managed to retain its industrial base and become a major exporting country, unlike other developed nations who embraced deindustrialization. The explanations are nothing new from what you hear or listen everywhere: mittelstands strongly focused on exports, education focused on apprenticeship, labor unions and companies working together, etc. They do talk about some things that I didn't hear or listen elsewhere, such as the fact that the PIGS sharing the EURO with germany kind of help germany because they dump the currency value bellow what it would be if it was a germany-only currency, which helps keeping german products competitive; also that mittelstands have difficulty innovating; and more interesting they explain why anglo-saxon countries fail in the labor union aspect (both the unions and the companies do not want to cooperate in the way germans do).

115 kB, 791 × 1024
It is an issue in Roraima state because the population there is very low, it's an isolated and poor state. Any small migration is already too much for them, and since it's an isolated state, most Venezuelans who arrive there have no way of traveling further south in the country, so they get stuck there. Additionally, as you can see in the map, there's not a lot of people on both sides of the border, it's Amazonia after all, Venezuela's population is 90% located in their northern coast, but the Venezuelans who do live near our border are usually amerindians or other very poor rural people, many aren't even literate, the amerindians have very bad hygiene and health habits, so although it's a small migration if compared to hispano-american countries and specially colombia, the ones migrating to those countries at least have a better chance of re-adapting and making their own way, the migrants here are IQ89. Finally, most of this migration happened in the last two years, when Temer was in power, and Temer's government was about austerity and cost cuts, which means that he didn't bother with the situation and mostly left Roraima people to deal with the issue by themselves, he didn't even bother visiting the state during these two years. The situation could have been easily solved if these venezuelans had been transported to somewhere else in the country, where their presence and toll on public services could be diluted, where they could find better jobs and assistance, but Temer didn't even bother doing that. It could have been a non-issue, in the end their migration here is very small.

Now Bolsonaro was elected and he spoke against these migrations, calling venezuelan and haitian migrants "the scum of the earth".

And he's an economists, so his arguments are different from typical urbanists.

Does a neat series on fatal/near fatal medical problems. Is pretty heavily explained for bydlo though.

And there is also Coyote Petersen who is a fantastic human model for showing exactly how painful it is to be envonemated or bitten by various potentially dangerous animals
As I pretty much expected, being bitten by an African centipede seemed to be the most overtly painful one. Do note he doesn't actually let fatally poisonous things like Death Adders and Sydney Funnel Webs bite him, but he still has a tendency to play with such things
Two things you should never underestimate in an animal: speed and flexibility. Strength too but I've seen people make the mistake with say a snapping turtle who do realize the finger clipping strength of their jaws but fail to take into account how long and flexible their heads are and how fast they are. Spiders are one such thing. They may appear slow, but oh man are many of them not when agitated. Two of the angriest and fastest spiders are also the two most deadly ones.

One thing I learned helping turtles across roads is how bitey most of them get when you pick them up. That said, the only true snapping turtle I ever picked up was really small-probably the size of a walnut. As I held it between two fingers it kept reaching its tiny head back snapping the whole time. It was funny because it was so small, but I wouldn't want to try picking up a larger one.
