I'm not sure when my love of documentaries began, but I know it's been alive and well for many years. My favorite part of watching them is that most are well researched and try to get an objective point of view on the topic. Some of the documentaries I reference in my resource page, have changed my life radically and I attribute much of my healing, health-wise, to them.
One of the latest additions to the Netflix reel is definitely one of my top 5: Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret. "It's a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it."
What I think is unique about this movie is that Kip Andersen sets out to discover answers to what's going on with the state of our planet and in the process learns a lot about himself which leads to some radical changes in his own life. His journey unfolds right before the viewers eyes and you can't help but take the ride along with him.
Although the subject matter may get a bit heavy at times, Kip's humor shines through and separates the film from a doom and gloom type of feature. I encourage you to take an hour or so of your day and watch this very important film. The film is now available in part thanks to Leonardo DiCaprio who saw the movie, loved it and wanted to be involved. You can find the film on Netflix or go to their website to purchase a DVD, www.cowspiracy.com.
