As the semester is winding down and Toronto's Hot Docs festival is starting, I thought I'd give you a list of the documentaries I showed in my class this semester. A few I have seen before, frequently, and a few I saw for the first time. Some I've been recommending to everyone. Since I teach a class on ecology and environmentalism (Happy Belated Earth Day!) they all have a bio focus. I hope it inspires you to revisit a Bio Doc or check out a new one. Learning isn't just for college students, particularly mine.
the trailer (the scene appears about ninety seconds in) to my students to show it in a different context.
