Top 20 Best-Sellers Collection

  • The Hunting Ground
    The Hunting Ground | Director: Kirby Dick  
    Year of production: 2015| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    From the Academy Award-nominated filmmaking team behind THE INVISIBLE WAR, comes a startling exposé of sexual assault on U.S. campuses, institutional cover-ups and the brutal social toll on victims and their families.
    Weaving together verite footage and first-person testimonials, the film follows survivors as they pursue their education and legal justice, despite harsh retaliation, harassment, and pushback.

  • Escape Fire
    Escape Fire | Director: Matthew Heineman   Susan Froemke  
    Year of production: 2012| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare tackles one of the most pressing issues of our time: how can we save our badly broken healthcare system? American healthcare costs are rising so rapidly that they could reach $4.2 trillion annually, roughly 20% of our gross domestic product, within ten years. We spend $300 billion a year on pharmaceutical drugs – almost as much as the rest of the world combined. We pay more, yet our health outcomes are worse. About 65% of Americans are overweight and almost 75% of healthcare costs are spent on preventable diseases that are the major causes of disability and death in our society.

  • Poverty, Inc.
    Poverty, Inc. | Director: Michael Matheson Miller  
    Year of production: 2014| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    The West has positioned itself as the protagonist of development, giving rise to a vast multi-billion dollar poverty industry — the business of doing good has never been better. Yet the results have been mixed, in some cases even catastrophic, and leaders in the developing world are growing increasingly vocal in calling for change.
    From TOMs Shoes to international adoptions, from solar panels to U.S. agricultural subsidies, the film challenges each of us to ask the tough question: Could I be part of the problem?

  • How to Survive a Plague
    How to Survive a Plague | Director: David France  
    Year of production: 2012| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    Faced with their own mortality, an improbable group of mostly HIV-positive young men and women broke the mold as radical warriors taking on Washington and the medical establishment. Despite having no scientific training, these self-made activists infiltrated the pharmaceutical industry and helped identify promising new drugs, moving them from experimental trials to patients in record time. How To Survive A Plague is the story of how activism and innovation turned AIDS from a death sentence into a manageable condition.

  • A Place At The Table
    A Place At The Table | Director: Kristi Jacobson   Lori Silverbush  
    Year of production: 2012| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    Directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush examine the issue of hunger in America through the lens of three people struggling with food insecurity: Barbie, a single Philadelphia mother who grew up in poverty and is trying to provide a better life for her two kids; Rosie, a Colorado fifth-grader who often has to depend on friends and neighbors to feed her and has trouble concentrating in school; and Tremonica, a Mississippi second-grader whose asthma and health issues are exacerbated by the largely empty calories her hardworking mother can afford.

  • Inequality For All
    Inequality For All | Director: Jacob Kornbluth  
    Year of production: 2013| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    “We make the rules of the economy – and we have the power to change those rules.” – Robert Reich
    A passionate argument on behalf of the middle class, INEQUALITY FOR ALL features Robert Reich – professor, best-selling author, and Clinton cabinet member – as he demonstrates how the widening income gap has a devastating impact on the American economy. The film is an intimate portrait of a man whose lifelong goal remains protecting those who are unable to protect themselves.

  • Pray the Devil Back to Hell
    Pray the Devil Back to Hell | Director: Abigail Disney   Gini Reticker  
    Year of production: 2008| Country of production: Other, USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    This celebrated documentary tells the dramatic success story of the women’s peace movement of Liberia, where Christian and Muslim women banded together to end their country’s civil war. Leymah Gbowee, the central figure in the film, and the Women of Liberia are the recipients of the 2009 John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award™.

  • Trapped
    Trapped | Director: Dawn Porter  
    Year of production: 2016| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    U.S. abortion clinics are fighting to survive. Since 2010, hundreds of laws regulating abortion clinics have been passed by conservative state legislatures, particularly in the south. These restrictions, known as TRAP laws (or Targeted Regulations of Abortion Providers) are spreading across America.
    Faced with increased costs of compliance and the alarming fear of violence from protestors, the stakes for the women and men on the frontlines couldn’t be any higher. As the battle heads to the U.S. Supreme Court, TRAPPED follows the struggles of the clinic workers and lawyers fighting to keep abortion safe and legal for millions of American women.

  • Do Not Resist
    Do Not Resist | Director: Craig Atkinson  
    Year of production: 2016| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    DO NOT RESIST is an urgent and powerful exploration of the rapid militarization of the police in the United States.
    Starting on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, as the community grapples with the death of Michael Brown, DO NOT RESIST – the directorial debut of DETROPIA cinematographer Craig Atkinson – offers a stunning look at the current state of policing in America and a glimpse into the future. This Tribeca Film Festival winner for Best Documentary puts viewers in the center of the action, – from a ride-along with a South Carolina SWAT team to inside a police training seminar that teaches the importance of “righteous violence”.

  • Life, Animated
    Life, Animated | Director: Roger Ross Williams  
    Year of production: 2016| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    A documentary by Academy Award winning filmmaker Roger Ross Williams based on a book by Pulitzer Prize winning writer Ron Suskind.
    Imagine being trapped inside a Disney movie and having to learn about life mostly from animated characters dancing across a screen of color. A fantasy? A nightmare?
    Life, Animated is the real-life story of Owen Suskind, the son of the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Ron Suskind and his wife, Cornelia. An autistic boy who couldn’t speak for years, Owen memorized dozens of Disney movies, turned them into a language to express love and loss, kinship, brotherhood.

  • The Act Of Killing
    The Act Of Killing | Director: Joshua Oppenheimer  
    Year of production: 2012| Country of production: Denmark, Norway, United Kingdom | Language: Indonesian (with full English subtitles available)

    In a country where killers are celebrated as heroes, the filmmakers challenge unrepentant death squad leader Anwar Congo and his friends to dramatise their role in genocide. But their idea of being in a movie is not to provide testimony for a documentary: they want to be stars in their favourite film genres—gangster, western, musical. They write the scripts. They play themselves. And they play their victims. This is a cinematic fever dream, an unsettling journey deep into the imaginations of mass-murderers and the shockingly banal regime of corruption and impunity they inhabit.

  • The Look of Silence
    The Look of Silence | Director: Joshua Oppenheimer  
    Year of production: 2014| Country of production: Denmark, Indonesia, United Kingdom | Language: Indonesian, Javanese (with full English subtitles available)

    Through Joshua Oppenheimer’s work filming perpetrators of the Indonesian genocide, a family of survivors discovers how their son was murdered and the identity of the men who killed him. The youngest brother is determined to break the spell of silence and fear under which the survivors live, and so confronts the men responsible for his brother’s murder – something unimaginable in a country where killers remain in power.

     

  • Food Chains
    Food Chains | Director: Sanjay Rawal  
    Year of production: 2014| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    There is more interest in food these days than ever, yet there is very little interest in the hands that pick it. Farmworkers, the foundation of our fresh food industry, are routinely abused and robbed of wages. In extreme cases they can be beaten, sexually harassed or even enslaved – all within the borders of the United States.
    Food Chains reveals the human cost in our food supply and the complicity of large buyers of produce like fast food and supermarkets.

  • Connected
    Connected | Director: Tiffany Shlain  
    Year of production: 2011| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    Have you ever faked a restroom trip to check your email? Or become so overwhelmed that you just unplugged from it all? In this funny, eye-opening, and inspiring film, Tiffany Shlain takes audiences on an exhilarating rollercoaster ride to discover what it means to be connected in the 21st century. Using a brilliant mix of animation, archival footage, and home movies, Shlain reveals the surprising ties that link us not only to the people we love but also to the world at large. A personal film with universal relevance, Connected explores how, after centuries of declaring our independence, it may be time for us to declare our interdependence instead.

  • (Dis)Honesty
    (Dis)Honesty | Director: Yael Melamede  
    Year of production: 2015| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    It’s human nature to lie; we all do it! From scandalous headlines to little white lies, (Dis)Honesty – The Truth About Lies explores the complex impact dishonesty has on our lives and everyday society. Interweaving groundbreaking experiments from celebrated behavioral economist Dan Ariely with personal stories from individuals affected by the unraveling of their lies, Ariely and a team of scientists uncover our propensity to be dishonest—sometimes even unknowingly. What’s revealed is a fascinating look at the forces behind our collective behavior and the many truths behind lies.

  • The Music of Strangers
    The Music of Strangers | Director: Morgan Neville  
    Year of production: 2015| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    From the director of the Oscar® -winning documentary 20 Feet from Stardom, and the critically-acclaimed Best of Enemies, The Music of Strangers tells the extraordinary story of The Silk Road Ensemble, an international musical collective created by legendary cellist Yo-Yo Ma. The Sound of Silk follows this group of diverse instrumentalists, vocalists, composers, arrangers, visual artists and storytellers as they explore the power of music to preserve tradition, shape cultural evolution and inspire hope.

  • Project Wild Thing
    Project Wild Thing | Director: David Bond  
    Year of production: 2013| Country of production: United Kingdom | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    David Bond is concerned. His kids’ waking hours are dominated by a cacophony of marketing, and a screen dependence threatening to turn them into glassy-eyed zombies. Like city kids everywhere, they spend way too much time indoors – not like it was back in his day. He decides it’s time to get back to nature – literally. In an attempt to compete with the brands, which take up a third of his daughter’s life, Bond appoints himself Marketing Director for Nature.
    David’s humorous journey unearths some painful truths about modern family life.

  • Terms and Conditions May Apply
    Terms and Conditions May Apply | Director: Cullen Hoback  
    Year of production: 2013| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    Have you ever read the Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policies connected to every website you visit, phone call you make, or app you use? Of course you haven’t. But those agreements allow corporations to do things with your personal information you could never even imagine. What are you really agreeing to when you click “I accept”?

  • The Invisible War
    The Invisible War | Director: Kirby Dick  
    Year of production: 2012| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    Casualties of war rage beyond the battlefield. As ranks of women in the American military swell, so do incidents of rape. An estimated 30 percent of servicewomen and at least 1 percent of servicemen are sexually assaulted during their enlistment, not by the enemy, but at the hands of fellow soldiers. With stark clarity and escalating revelations, The Invisible War exposes a rape epidemic in the armed forces, investigating the institutions that perpetuate it as well as its profound personal and social consequences.

  • #chicagoGirl
    #chicagoGirl | Director: Joe Piscatella  
    Year of production: 2013| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    From her childhood bedroom in suburban Chicago, Ala’a, a 19-year-old American girl coordinates the revolution in Syria.
    Armed with Facebook, Twitter, Skype and cameraphones, she helps her social network “on the ground” in Syria brave snipers and shelling in the streets to show the world the human rights atrocities of a dictator. But just because the world can see the violence doesn’t mean the world can help. As the revolution rages on, everyone in the network must decide what is the most effective way to fight a dictator: social media or AK-47s.
