People today have access to more information than we ever thought possible, but this can cause people to lose touch with the world around them. And without attachment or investment in the things happening around us, it’s very hard to make change happen.
With increasing concerns about global climate change and other environmental issues, we all need to connect to the world again. Sometimes the best way to do this is to just sit down, get off social media, and immerse yourself in a visually stunning and emotionally engaging experience. And a really good documentary is a great way to do this.
We created a list of five immersive documentaries to help you connect back with nature and understand the challenges faced by the environment today.
1. Planet Earth
What better way to celebrate the environment than to experience the richness and beauty that our planet has to offer? Narrated by naturalist Sir David Attenborough, BBC’s Planet Earth explores different landscapes and the wildlife that populates them. The documentary goes through different biomes, from the Arctic to the plains to the deep sea, to show corners of the world the average viewer will likely never see. Educational yet serene, Planet Earth is the perfect documentary for those looking to appreciate the world around us and see the natural wonders of the world.
2. An Inconvenient Truth
3. 11th Hour
