5 documentaries I recommend

Hi folks! As I spent the last two weeks at home doing nothing but taking antibiotics and shit, I watched loads of documentaries. Marciano Casetta on Instagram asked me to share some of them so... Here we are.


Of sheep and man

Maybe one of the best documentaries I've seen this year. 16-year-old Habib trains a ram named 'El Bouq' to become a sheep fight champion. Yes... A sheep fight champion.

I like this documentary because the "interviewer" is invisible. Actually there's no interviewer at all. You have the feeling that you're witnessing the whole story alone, you have time to think about the meaning of all of this. In my opinion, this is a documentary about power, about the desperate use of animals as an instrument to gain power and survive in a rough world.



The house of stronzo

A funny documentary about Stronzo, an eccentric collector of folkloristic and exotic artworks in USA.

He says a lot of dirty words and he has a lot of stories to tell. A nice documentary to spend a lazy afternoon.



Generation wealth

A documentary about the pathologies that have created the richest society the world has ever seen. Directed by the photographer Lauren Greenfield.

It's a Murican documentary about how Murica is Murica. I don't really like how it's edited, but the photos are gorgeous and the people interviewed are so dumb I must share it with you.



One child nation

The consequences of the one-child policy in China.

Ok, we all know about the one-child policy, but... How? This documentary gives you an answer. I really appreciate the videos and the commercials from the Chinese propaganda, the way they brainwashed something like one billion people.



SmoKings

Two guys decided to produce and trade cigarettes online, the tobacco lobbies and the Italian government start an intense fight against them.

Unfortunately, there are no English subtitles :(
