I am a huge fan of documentaries.
I started writing a post about it a few months ago, and for some reason I wasn’t able to finish writing and the post just ended up as a draft.
Yesterday, I was binge watching documentaries from the YouTube Channels called Unreported World and Refinery29. I felt so inspired after watching that I decided to finish this post.. So, here we are.
My interest in watching documentaries started when I was in grade school. My class starts at 6:30 am and I get up around 3:30 am, I will turn on the television after taking a cold shower and start watching documentaries on our local channels. I loved it. I enjoyed every minute I spent watching documentaries. It one thing I always look forward to once I wake up.
For me, documentaries are like my window to see the reality of this giant flawed place we live in, It’s so fascinating how there are so much things going on in this world that I don’t know. There’s a lot of practices or traditions that are still present that I thought have already vanished for a long time now, which I find interesting. It’s crazy most of the time.
The thing about documentaries is they try to show you the world as real as possible, most of the time you will see the struggles/challenges they had to go through just to provide a quality film.
It’s so amazing how documentaries—a video that lasts less than an hour, inspires you to become a better person and have this desire to make this world a better place. I learn a lot of things just by watching and the message they send always leave a tremendous impact on my well-being.
It’s so far from the movies or series that use special effects or high tech cameras. Documentaries don’t have script; they don’t know what waits for them or what will happen to them while they’re filming. Not every documentary is a success, and their life is at stake most of the time.
I like other forms of media, but documentary will always have a special place in my heart. Their dedication to provide information to the public is just one thing I admire.
I don’t have my favourite genre, but today I will share with you some documentaries I think you’ll find interesting, I hope that you’ll like it.
