Fairphone is a social enterprise company which aims to develop smartphones that are designed and produced with minimal harm to people and the planet. The company is based in Amsterdam, Netherlands and was supported in its startup phase by the Waag Society, a foundation which aims to foster experimentation with new technologies, art and culture. The main motivations for founding Fairphone were to develop a mobile device that does not contain conflict minerals (which in smartphones are typically gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten), has fair labor conditions for the workforce along the supply chain producing it and help people to use their phone longer. The second version of the company's handset is one of the first modular smartphones available for purchase, with the product being designed to be easily repaired and upgraded.

Breaking The Cycle - A Norwegian prison warden travels to America to see how the prison system and rehabilitation is handled there. Bit dry, but an interesting juxtaposition of two cultures.

The Great War -

A long and very fine PBS documentary on WWI, and its effects both on the people, culture, and world policy of the time. While a long documentary at just a hair under 6 hours, it is told with a broad enough vision that it should be enjoyable for almost anyone.

Edit - Seems the Youtube versions got taken down. Sadly this is more and more common both with newer and older shows. It is still available on:

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/films/great-war/ .

Not sure if it works in all countries though.

Big 8 part (almost 6 hours long) documentary on the old pre internet BBS system, and the culture behind it. Interesting stuff -

First part-

All parts nicely cued up to play in sequence -

----------------------------

Dogs of War. An early 90's look at the young British men that signed up to be mercenaries during the break up and restructuring of Yugoslavia -

Dirty Driving: Thunder Cars of Indiana - 1990's HBO documentary on an economically depressed midwestern town in the US, where one of the biggest hobbies is stock car racing. It may not sound that interesting, but the people and personalities in it make the film -

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9tHyzAp3IY" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9tHyzAp3IY</a>.

American Hollow. HBO takes a look at the slightly dysfunctional lives of a family in America's Appalachia. Much like the above, it's the people that make the story -

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qTjfABqsQs" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qTjfABqsQs</a>.

If you liked the above, the director of the above (Rory Kennedy) made a much darker film about a family in the rural south called A Boy's Life in 2003 or 4. Hard to find, but you sometimes find it on streaming sites. Here's the trailer -

Mommy Dead and Deariest -

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gq1abIF2cPI" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gq1abIF2cPI</a>.

A look a deranged mother who coddles her daughter with disastrous results. While it falls into the true crime formula, it is told in a way that is a step or two beyond the standard cable fare. It's an HBO documentary, so watch it quick if it sounds interesting.

From the Youtube page:

The Immortalists

"What would the world look like if humans never grew old? Two eccentric biologists are determined to find out. In this larger-than-life doc, Bill Andrews and Aubrey de Grey leave behind the journals and peer reviews of the scientific establishment to embark on a quest for the age-old secret of eternal youth. Can it be done? And is it desirable? They differ in their approach, but are united in their goal: to learn to live forever, or die trying."


Take my advice and skip 27:30 till 29:00

 Downloaded it from Spectrum last night. Very well-done film about how prevelant and deep-seated the Feminism virus has been in Western culture.

From YouTube:
The Third Antichrist Prophecy Of Nostradamus - World Documentary Films.

Michel de Nostredame (depending on the source, 14 or 21 December 1503 2 July 1566), usually Latinised as Nostradamus, was a French apothecary and reputed seer who published collections of prophecies that have since become widely famous. He is best known for his book Les Propheties, the first edition of which appeared in 1555. Since the publication of this book, which has rarely been out of print since his death, Nostradamus has attracted a following that, along with much of the popular press, credits him with predicting many major world events. Most academic sources maintain that the associations made between world events and Nostradamus's quatrains are largely the result of misinterpretations or mistranslations (sometimes deliberate) or else are so tenuous as to render them useless as evidence of any genuine predictive power.

From it's Youtube page:

"Director Martin Hampton takes us into the complicated worlds of four hoarders -- people whose lives are dominated by their relationship to possessions.

It is very natural for humans to give objects special importance. But when this tendency gets out of hand complications can begin. Hoarding behavior should be seen on a spectrum, ranging from mild to severe.

The film questions whether hoarding is a symptom of mental illness or a revolt against the material recklessness of consumerism. When does collecting become hoarding and why do possessions exert such an influence on our lives?

Compulsive Hoarding, can be defined as: 1. The acquisition of, and failure to discard a large number of possessions that appear to be useless or of limited value; 2. Living spaces sufficiently cluttered so as to preclude activities for which those spaces were designed; 3. Significant distress of impairment in functioning caused by the hoarding."
