Last year hubby and I ditched our spendy cable package, opting instead for an $8 monthly Netflix subscription. The documentary offerings are stellar, and Brad recently suggested it would be fun if we devoted one night a week to watching them.
Since Mondays are always frantic, they seem like the perfect day to unwind with a good flick, and we thought you might like to join us. So we now present a new segment here at The Dew Abides unimaginatively called Monday Night at the Movies.
Each Monday, we’ll post the name of a film we plan to watch that evening. The titles will almost exclusively come from Netflix, since the service is available in all of our gentle readers’ home countries. The subjects will generally be environmentally flavored, although we’ll, no doubt, sneak in a travel or music documentary from time to time.
We welcome comments, both good and bad. Some of these films are paradigm changers (Food, Inc.), some are so over-the-top that they won’t preach to anyone but the choir (Dive!), and some might occasionally make you want to punch the subjects in the face (No Impact Man). But hopefully all of them will make you think and question what you believe and why you believe it.
Our first movie will be Farmageddon. Here’s the description:
Americans' right to access fresh, healthy foods of their choice is under attack. Farmageddon tells the story of farms that were providing safe, healthy foods to their communities and were forced to stop, sometimes through violent action.
Is there a documentary you’d like to watch with our online community? If so, just send us the title in the comment section, and we’ll feature it in an upcoming post.
