Blackfish

Overlooked by the Academy for a Best Documentary Feature nomination, Blackfish is a must-see for animal lovers and people against cruelty of any kind.  Blackfish follows the plight and abuse of killer whales at institutions like Sea World in Orlando, FL.  You’ll never look at a zoo or aquarium in the same way after viewing this essential documentary.

The Central Park Five

central park five

 

 

 

 

Ken Burns, Sarah Burns and David McMahon produced The Central Park Five, a PBS documentary which chronicles the five African-American men wrongly accused of raping a white woman in Central Park during the summer of 1989.  There’s nothing sensational about this documentary.  Just a quiet truth about race relations in our country.  Timely especially given the Zimmerman trial last year.
