Netflix's Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos posted a list of interesting documentaries to watch over the holidays.
I am a huge fan of documentary films and helping our subscribers get access to them even if they don’t live in the big cities is one of my favorite parts of this job. Our documentary selection is a point of great pride for me and my team. Documentary films play a very important role in a world where news is coming is shorter and shorter bites and the stories of our lives are becoming more and more complex. Documentarians entertain, inform and sometimes change the course of history. This year has been a great year for docs and some of the world’s best storytellers have brought their films to Netflix for streaming. It is hard to choose just a dozen of the best documentaries recently added, but I thought it might be a way to help you catch up over the long holiday break.
Here's his list of recommended documenataries: Senna, The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975, Cave of Forgotten Dreams, Waiting for "Superman", Winnebago Man, Buck, The Arbor, The Last Mountain, Forks Over Knives, Casino Jack and the United States of Money, Camp Victory, Afghanistan, and Storage Wars.
