Related Movies

    Here is a list of movies that i recommend. I have watched most of them and will watch the rest shortly. My kids watched some of them and i believe it teaches them a lot about the world we live in. My kids didn't even know we lived different ( Minimal waster, Organic eater, From Scratch cooker, Biker, Re-user, Water and Electricity conserver) than mainstream American households till recently. To them, our way of life is normal and other people are wasteful and careless.
    Please stay tuned and visit back as I will constantly add links to this page and upgrade the page.
    I would love to add your recommendation to this list. So, please feel free to send me a message with your recommendation.

  1. I really like your blog and this is a great list! Glad you included Surviving Progress, one of my favorite documentaries ever. I would also add The 11th Hour (2007), Pipe Dreams (2011), and No Impact Man (2009). For children (and adults too!) I would recommend Born to Be Wild (2011).

    1. Wonderful. Yesss. How could I forget. I have watched "No impact man " and liked it a lot. Thank you so much for your comment and suggestion. I will add them to the list and will watch them soon too.

  2. Great list! I have reviewed a few films (in Swedish) on my blog The films are mostly documentaries in English and are tagged "filmrecension".

    1. Thank you Ann-christin. I wish I knew Swedish. But I will definitely check on your page.

    2. Maybe you can discover a new film even if you don't understand ther review :-)

    3. You are right, Ann-Christin;
      I just watched the trailer for "Unseen" . hahah. Loved it. Is it possible for you to add the "Translate" botton to your blog? I am very curious to brows it.

  3. Hi Paris, I admit I am actually afraid of watching these movies after starting with the one on Stuff, that was supposed to be light. Very depressing (and not really new, just sort of filling in dark spots I sorta knew about).

    I am an avid Ted Talks fan ( Matt Riley's "when ideas have sex" being one of my favorites, as well as both Brene Brown's talks). They are so optimistic. My personal experience is, I need the comfort and safety of knowing solutions more than the size or nature of problems. I want to know how I can contribute... Otherwise I have bad sleep and worse days : ). Which is what I love about your blog!!

    All my best and heartful greetings!

    1. A very good and positive point Tess. Watching informative movies for us, people that are informed, can truly become depressing.
      I Believe those movies can help the uninformed though. It has been eye opening to many people I shared them with. I think it is the first step. People need to become informed about the problems. Stop the denial and accept it. Once that stage is achieved, they can focus on the solution. Too many people deny the problem and don't want to be bothered with.
      I am so happy to see you being so positive and enjoy reading your comments. I will definitely check on that Ted talk. I am a big fan of Ted as well.
      Thank you Tess.

  4. Hey! First off, I love your blog! I discovered the Story of Stuff project through your movie list.
    To add to the list, I would also recommend A Sea Change (, the story of a grandfather who researches ocean acidification and the consequences of carbon emissions on marine life to explain it to his little grandson.
    The BBC series Planet Earth is also great!
    Cheers from Quebec,

    1. Thank you Eve for your kind comment. I will definitely check on A Sea Change. Sorry I published your comment so late.
      Have a great day :)
