Documentaries/Talks

Here I will share the trailers of powerful documentaries, talks and videos with thought provoking themes that I am personally passionate about!

Animals

The Animal Communicator – Anna Breytenbach has dedicated her life to what she calls interspecies communication. She sends detailed messages to animals through pictures and thoughts. She then receives messages of remarkable clarity back from the animals.

Blackfish – About captive Orcas/Seaworld

The Ghosts in our Machine – Illuminates the lives of individual animals living within the machine of our modern world.

Earthlings – Full length documentary below. It is the single most powerful and informative documentary about society’s tragic and unforgivable use of nonhuman animals, narrated by Joaquin Phoenix.

 

The Eyes of Thailand – the amazing true story of Soraida Salwala, a passionate woman who dedicated 10 years of her life to help two elephant landmine survivors walk again at the world’s first Elephant Hospital.

Minds in the Water – follows the quest of professional surfer Dave Rastovich and his friends to protect dolphins, whales and the oceans they all share.

The Cove – analyzes and questions Japan’s dolphin hunting culture.

Whaledreamers – This visually stunning film offers an incredible glimpse into a rarely seen and scarcely understood tribal culture whose entire story of creation revolves around whales and has endured for centuries.

Kevin Richardson is amazing! The Kevin Richardson Wildlife Sanctuary’s mission is to provide a self-sustaining African carnivore sanctuary for the purposes of wild species preservation through education, awareness and funding, especially pertaining to the rapid decline of large carnivores in Africa due to habitat loss, human-predator conflict, unscrupulous hunting, disease and their illegal trade.

Some beautiful footage of Kevin with the lions and hyenas!

Environment

Humanity/Happiness

Happy – what makes people truly happy?

Humanity/Education

Logan Laplante – An amazing 13 year-old boy who was taken out of the education system to be home schooled instead. Not only was he home schooled, but Logan had the ability to tailor his education to his interests and also his style of learning, something traditional education does not offer. As Logan has mentioned, when he grows up he wants to be happy and healthy. At a TEDx talk in 2013, he discussed how hacking his education is helping him achieve that goal.

More on this topic and where I first saw the above video of Logan:
