Documentaries have an incredible power to raise awareness and create transformative changes in consciousness both at the personal and global levels.
Over the last 8 years, at Filmsforaction.org they watched hundreds of social change documentaries and cataloged the best of them on the site. There’s now so many that they realized they needed to filter this down even further. So what follows is the list of the very best 100 – hand-picked for their quality, insight and potential to inspire positive change.
All of the films have been selected because they are either free to watch online, or can be rented online. There are several films they would have loved to add to this list, but they currently don’t have an accessible way to view them. As that changes, we’ll be updating this list over time. Enjoy!
This list dates from 2015 but it is terribly topical !
