Watch this documentary, please

Dear all

Few days ago I watched HUMAN, an extraordinary documentary in Netflix.


It is a documentary of what makes all of us ONE, despite our diversity. So I recomend it highly to you as a high-quality tool to learn and teach about the oneness of mankind.

The documentary places real persons from all cultures, age and backgrounds right in front of the camera to tell their stories on themes like love, violence, gender equality, wealth and poverty, work, family relationships, and the purpose of life.

It is indeed one of the best documentaries I've seen: inspiring music, breathtaking photography, moving stories. I was moved to tears several times.

Warning: It is a loooong documentary (2 hours 23 minutes) so you better get ready with enough time, food (not too caloric) and drinks (non-alcoholic! ) by your side.

Thank you - Unfortunately do not have the data limits to do this

I hope I get to see it some day.

Regards Tony

Greetings Camachoe,

I tend to swap providers from time to time so as to offer more diversity. I will look at this series when I next return to Netflix.

There are some breathtaking documentaries that possess a spiritual focus. Another one that I really like is called Home. This takes the viewer on a journey to chart the evolution of life and the human race. It is undertaken with aerial photography throughout. It is narrated in a number of languages and is available on open domain by licence. The English version can be viewed here https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jqxENMKaeCU

Greetings Camachoe,

What an interesting coincidence. The films we have recommended that people watch here are actually produced by the same person, Yann Arthus-Bertrand. He has also produced some more films that you might interesting.

As expected, the film you recommended was excellent.

Good minds thing alike.

I saw all three youtube parts of Human, extended version. Yes, there were three, not two. It lasted about 4.5 hours. I really got into it yesterday in the first two parts, but it wasn't the same today apparently because I wasn't as receptive today. I really was compassionate yesterday, and really connected with the speakers. It was really good but I didn't like their habit of showing other people when someone was talking. I highly recommend that everyone see it.

Another excellent watch is, I AM, by Tom Shadyac. In not quite an hour and a half, he visits with some of today's great minds, including authors, teachers, religious leaders and scientists searching for the fundamental endemic problem that causes all the other problems, while simultaneously reflecting on his own life choices of excess, greed and eventual healing.

Just thought this might be a very helpful, easily obtained dvd; given the beautiful discussions being held on this forum.

Loving regards,
Becky

I also enjoyed "MINIMALISM".

It is about two guys who share their experience in possessing only the things they can make a good use of and that truly matter to them. These things, and nothing else.

The result is a deep sense of freedom and happiness. They have re-discovered relationships, beauty, financial health, awe and love.

Theirs is not an apology for poverty or ascetism, but for rational life.
Indeed, by getting rid of materialism, these guys started appreciating and enjoying material things as never before.

After I watched this, I donated about half my clothes. I already live in a small apartment (68 square meters) that helps me to keep only what I really need and value. Hopefully, I will start having enough money as to help others and enjoy things that I really like (e.g travelling, an on-line university degree on medical writing) and leaving aside things or projects about what I believed I was supposed to have (certain foods and entertainment, new items replacing old items that still look good and work well, a big house, etc.).

Don't miss this documentary, because it is a good step to start practicing "detachment" !!
