There are several documentaries that I've seen this winter that I believe you should seek out and place on your "Must See" list. Without exception, each is thought-provoking and disturbing, and has made me shake my head and ask, "What has the world come to?" These four documentary movies are about: Food, water, dolphins and a trust, all based on public trust and all broken.
Each has sparked lively conversation within our four walls. The first two have made us change our behavior of purchasing food and water. The latter two are "just not right", and in a world where I was taught that wrongs will not prevail ... their wrongs continue to disturb me as they will and can never be made right.
"Food, Inc", "Tapped", and "The Cove" all involve the abusive use of food, water and animal resources - precious resources we should be protecting for the generations to come. "The Art of the Steal" is about The Barnes Collection, arguably the finest private collection of impressionistic and post-impressionistic art in the world, one protected by a private trust, and broken by public and political figures breaking a basic public trust - that the law will protect our wills and trusts after we are gone.
Let us know what you think on any of these topics.
Note: The Barnes has not yet been moved to Philadelphia and can be seen, by reservation, in its original venue in Merion, PA for a few more months. Peter and I are thrilled, we have tickets to see The Barnes in early May!
