Documentaries Thread Anonymous 09/01/2020 (Tue) 22:43:44 No.542
[JW02 ~ 04/16/2020] A thread to post and request good documentaries on the variety of subjects. I'll start with some choice docus on ancient Egypt. All are selected for quality of presentation, study of subject as well as absence of current year agendas, we wuz kangz niggers etc. Romer's Egypt (3 episodes; 1982) and Ancient Lives (4 episodes; 1984) – the finest and quintessential ancient Egypt presentation; a soothing, in-depth look into ancient Egypt’s life and culture. It has that unmistakable classy 80s look that elevates it above the rest. https://www.invidio.us/channel/UC4gF7P8JKlJ9xAz8MF6AhFw/videos https://www.invidio.us/user/xinistri/videos Egypt: Beyond the Pyramids (4 episodes; 2001) – somewhat similar to Romer’s; not as in-depth or classy but still an enjoyable watch. https://www.dailymotion.com/search/Egypt%3A%20Beyond%20the%20Pyramids The Robot, The Dentist and the Pyramid (1 episode; 2020) – an excellent amateur documentary about the latest attempt to explore the shaft of the Great Pyramid. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=rhsddHgybTo Immortal Egypt (4 episodes; 2016) – despite being modern and hosted by a wommyn, it surprisingly manages to somehow avoid the current year pozz and is very much watchable. Probably the best HD series on the matter. https://www.invidio.us/playlist?list=PLhMDlPcDRBKSmMYcsJ_29dak29zvIm2pE Saving Egypt’s Oldest Pyramid (1 episode; 2013) – annoying modern American presentation but very interesting and unique look inside the Step Pyramid. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=qvSbtf68AOg Nova’s experimental archaeology series – some of the largest experimental archaeology attempts put to film. The Pyramid (1997): https://biqle.org/watch/218310818_456239037 The Obelisk (1997): https://biqle.org/watch/247592695_456239754 The Obelisk (2000): https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=K4NNCEVtgj8 The Chariot: https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=KIJvz7i0DdE Carl Sagan’s Cosmos (an extract from ep.12; 1980) – Sagan explains Rosetta stone and hieroglyphics. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=V8B58n0XWY4 Building the Great Pyramid (1 episode; 2002) – perhaps the only good dramatization on the subject of ancient Egypt. May not be the most accurate but definitely the best attempt to bring Egypt to life on screen. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=DzNXG4l0m6k

This might have been mentioned on the other board, but Deep Water (2006) is a compelling documentary about a race to be the first man to sail around the world without stopping. https://invidio.us/watch?v=d4Lv-yc8v6s I'm fascinated to learn about the topic of solo ocean voyages. Being isolated for months on a tiny boat surrounded by an infinite expanse of ocean puts an extreme strain on a person's psyche. It's easy to understand why some people go mad under these circumstances. This situation is particularly interesting because one of the sailors was very inexperienced. He soon realized that he wasn't able to sail around the world, yet he could not quit the race for financial reasons. So he decided to fake the circumnavigation by floating off the coast of South America until the other boats came around and passed him.

>>550 This clip is from State Funeral https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSvGX6syd_8 (trailer) https://rarbg.to/torrent/zfsq1my (torrent) The grand spectacle of the USSR's memorial ceremonies for Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin. It's slow cinema for the first hour as hordes of mourners fill the streets of Moscow and slowly file into Pillar Hall to catch a glimpse of Stalin's body lying in state. Then the funeral procession transports the coffin to Red Square where Stalin is laid to rest next to Lenin himself. It's stunning to witness the degree of Stalin's cult of personality. His face is on banners everywhere, his giant statues tower over swarming humanity below. Given the intense display of support, you might not expect Stalin's popularity to plummet a few years later when De-Stalinization removed his statues, renamed his cities, and reburied his corpse in a less dignified location. To his credit, Khrushchev saw how the grave crimes of Stalin demonstrated the grave dangers of excessive leader-worship. He sought to bring about (some) reforms to the Soviet system. Most socialist countries followed the example of the USSR. North Korea is a notable exception, and the Supreme Leader's totalitarian dictatorship continues to this day.

3D Scanning the tomb of Tutankhamun (1 episode; 2015) – a very short but fascinating semi-professional docu about creating a copy of Tutankhamun's tomb for tourists. It's kinda scary that they're able to recreate surfaces down to pores and imperfections now, virtually indistinguishable from the original.

The Spanish Civil War (6 episodes; 1983) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1718608/ <Documentary series which uses film and eyewitness accounts from both sides of the conflict that divided Spain in the years leading up to World War Two, also placing it in its international context. I just started watching this six-part series on the Spanish Civil War produced by Granada. It seems to be the best introduction to the topic. Spain has some relevance to the violent clashes and turmoil of 2020, although today's leftists are focused on race since the working class wants nothing to do with them. In Spain the issue of landownership was particularly divisive. Peasants did not have much upward mobility, as most land was held by the upper classes. I'm curious if there were laws that made it easy to own huge swaths of land? There should be natural forces making it costly to own a lot of property. Did other European counties solve this issue without 1) violent leftist revolution or 2) the state stealing land from the rich? It's true the situation seems "not fair" if all the land is taken, but I don't particularly like those solutions either. https://ulozto.net/hledej?q=spanish+civil+war+bobbafett or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lu5f9hp0IP4&list=PLAuucEydM53fQhEZiJHdWNzbdea35avxe
>>565 I've watched the first four parts. This documentary series relies heavily on eyewitness accounts, which provide a poignant understanding of the human motivations driving all sides of the conflict -- and there were MANY sides to it. In fact it's surprising that such discordant political interests all existed in one small country. But then, it's not surprising that a dictator ultimately emerged to hold everything together. Francisco Franco also wrote a screenplay I never knew about -- https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0035241/
>>566 >it's surprising that such discordant political interests all existed in one small country Is it really? Spain is/was, after all, 4 or 5 regions united by force under one kingdom with different cultures. It is a bit crazy to call it "a crusade" in my opinion but the fact is commies were bombing down churches and crosses all over the place, and in one sweep the monarchists hiding behind the veil of the "nation" squashed down actual nationalists/secessionists along with the republicans and commies hiding behind them.
>>567 >Spain is/was, after all, 4 or 5 regions united by force under one kingdom with different cultures. Well I knew about Basques and Catalans but not so much more. I certainly favor those secessionist movements, even today. The Carlists sounded like a movement based on politics rather than culture. Then there were other factions like CEDA, UGT, FAI... I noticed Masons on propaganda posters but the documentary did not include them (yet).

James Burke's Connections (1978) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0078588/ (9.3/10) Here's one of the best historical docuseries, according to IMDb >This ten volume series was made in 1978 by turning science into a detective story, James Burke creates a series that will fascinate students and adults alike. This interdisciplinary approach has never before been applied to history or science and it succeeds tremendously. Winner of the Red Ribbon in the American Film Festival, the scope of the series covers 19 countries and 150 locations, requiring over 14 months of filming. >As the Sherlock Holmes of science, Burke tracks through 12,000 years of history for the clues that lead us to eight great life changing inventions-the atom bomb, telecommunications, the computer, the production line, jet aircraft, plastics, rocketry and television. Burke postulates that such changes occur in response to factors he calls "triggers," some of them seemingly unrelated. These have their own triggering effects, causing change in totally unrelated fields as well. And so the connections begin...

Mystery of the Lost Pyramid (1 episode; 2020) – a short documentary from Smithsonian about the newly discovered pyramid and it's undisturbed tomb. It's a bit meandering, going on long tangents to talk about basic egyptological facts, but the main crux of the presentation is quite fascinating. Undisturbed tombs are one in a million so this is truly a big deal. Though it isn't a flashy royal burial chamber, there's a bit of a mystery to the investigation which was a nice story device. https://daftsex.com/watch/442943391_456239875

Before immersing myself again in the yugo mainstream cinema (hopefully) i remembered an interesting small documentary about the youth in the middle of the Yugo Wars, might be worth a check for some here. 1995's Vidimo Se U Čitulji or See You in the Obituary, translated in the west as "The Crime That Changed Serbia", is a half-hour video file of the rising Dizelaš phenomenon occurring in the balkans at the time, a "sub-culture" which was merely laborer-class teenagers and young adults who grew up in the dire economical crisis and disparity of the debt-ridden 80's Yugoslavia and who found themselves practically without a stable future when the happening happened and the yugo sphere started to kill each other. So, basically what the russians experienced in the post-USSR but without soldiers filling the crime ranks and with a bit more raw violence even without the proliferation of heavy weapons. Our team of journalists here, B92 (i think they were suicidal independent information seekers) try to interview some of the underground figures and try to patch what the hell is happening with Belgrade, but while trying to do so shenanigans ensue. To add a bit more more context the dizelaši turned into informal work, often petty, which sooner or later became crime, crime became closed-communities of associates which then became gangs and when the film was made the transition between gang and mafia organization started happening, problem is those countries already had mafias but they were either fighting as volunteers/mercenaries in the war or were trying to expand/escape into sideline activities in the Adriatic... or so the youths thought. Either way these young and wild but naive kids started living in excess and playful showings which ended in getting killed all the time: You see at this point, like in the famous Castellammarese War of the NY italian families, every man was a hitman in potential and the only way to avoid getting lead was hiding perpetually in holes or highland. But the flesh is weak and these dudes needed to drink cheap rakija, play arcade games and drive fast cars, which sometimes ended up in their demise when somebody searching ultimately found them; only those deemed worthy or honorable enough survived, that is until you banged the wrong girl. The documentary doesn't go that deep into the origins, that was just a quick explanation, but it does focus on the hilarious attitude many of these dudes had in contrast with the horrible war, hitmen roaming the city to score points and the infamous government security squads, the Red Berets, made of hardened military-trained cops and technically co-founded by a former mafia hitman-turned-caudillo, the great Arkan. This unit would later on be in waters just as hot as the dizelaši because of their ambiguity when their top ranks were found guilty of hitting the Prime Minister himself in 2003, that's how tough they were. Anyways, we see the youth supposedly getting their drug connections "from somewhere" (tip: the entirety of Eastern Europe) and being reckless assassins with no honor (hence the prevalence of their volatile lives) some of those who live enough, according to the images, seem to spend it all on german imports: These dudes dress in full Adidas attire, listen to House records, eat only Kinder chocolates, drive used Mercedes and they all want to buy BMW Alpines and AMG-tuned MC Benz; the Ultimate Krautboos. The most memorable part of this whole thing is a group of interviewees wanting to exert a bit of dominance to the opposing gang, so they all go up to one of their leaders' apartments and start posing/squatting for a photo in front of his prized Porsche 911 Carrera badly parked outside, heavily emasculating him in the process and adding an utmost shamefur dispray to the front page of some magazine. This led to the hilarious situation our investigation team suffered later on some of the interviewees started to get contract killed soon in the middle of the production run and its post-development, including some not even in that segment, and everyone with a camera was frowned upon and few were left to promote the movie with the directors This video also features a trademark narration seen in some movies from the area/era: The srs bns balkan female narrator, seemingly conventional but adds tons of presence over time, the amusing horror film Davitelj protiv Davitelja also included this to great effect along with other minor pieces. Think of the 70's stoic neutral japanese male narrator that appears in some japanese documentaries and movies. The famous Kocayne YT user uploaded this cool period piece along with his war-era turbo folk videos, a little window more to understand what kind of hell the balkans were living at the moment and that ultimately led to one of the directors/writers to become a monastery monk. Kocayne got taken down for hate speech but many videos got reuploaded again, so here they go in a friendly YT bypasser. >http://www.viewpure.com/porschesquattinggonewrong Wish this was 3 hours long, morbidly

Sixty-two Films That Shaped the Art of Documentary Filmmaking https://www.newyorker.com/culture/the-front-row/sixty-two-films-that-shaped-the-art-of-documentary-filmmaking http://archive.is/rq18D Godard fanboi Richard Brody has become extremely annoying with recent writings that champion not just contemporary wokester cinema but even corporate capeshit. This list was potentially redemptive with plenty of fresh documentary recommendations mixed with some lesser-known favorites of mine. But on closer inspection the new titles aren't quite as interesting as they first appeared; many seem to be chosen for their shitlib idpol value. At any rate here's his list: “Salt for Svanetia” (1930, Mikhail Kalatozov) “The Forgotten Frontier” (1931, Marvin Breckinridge) “Enthusiasm” (1930, Dziga Vertov) “The City” (1939, Ralph Steiner and Willard Van Dyke) “Let There Be Light” (1946, John Huston) “Farrebique” (1946, Georges Rouquier) “Strange Victory” (1948, Leo Hurwitz) “Night and Fog” (1955, Alain Resnais) “Chronicle of a Summer” (1960, Jean Rouch and Edgar Morin) “Integration Report 1” (1960, Madeline Anderson) “The Children Were Watching” (1961, Robert Drew) “Belarmino” (1964, Fernando Lopes) “Take This Hammer” (1964, Richard O.

>>802 I salute to those who have the stomach for sorting through all that poison.
>>802 I tried one that wasn't on the torrent sites >“With Babies and Banners” (1979, Lorraine Gray) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pa75V-tdBko After 20 minutes it's a fairly dull recollection of a 1936 UAW strike in Flint. So far there's no reason to watch it unless you're particularly interested in the history of the US labor movement. Perhaps it picks up steam eventually, but Harlan County USA is a vastly superior documentary on the same general topic. >“The Lenny Bruce Performance Film” (1967, John Magnuson) I haven't seen this, but it's highly questionable nonetheless. Who cares about Lenny Bruce anymore? I can't name a single comedian who cites him as a major influence. Usually he's mentioned -- very briefly -- in dismissive terms because his act doesn't hold up.
The Secret History of Writing (3 episodes; 2020) – a pretty decent B*C documentary about the invention and evolution of writing. It's not particularly in-depth but informative enough and the production values are good - they shot a lot of stuff across the world in great HD quality and there's minimum of talking heads. The first two episodes are particularly interesting, being filled with actual information, while the final episode is, sadly, a product of its time and is dedicated to pointless pondering about the future of writing and how emojis will totally replace it yo.

They are not "omg he was perfectly fine", all 3 had long running but controlled illnesses, but they would've not died unless that powerful seasonal flu happened. Was it the 'rona? i don't know, they got diagnostic as such but in many countries the doctors point that out so you can get government gibs even if the respiratory death was not viral. >Personal anecdotes aren't good arguments >The facts speak for themselves. What facts? it is a fact for me and for many others, it is also a fact the supposed deaths all vary wildly and could be anything, also a fact that test to identify it also tests for tons of other shit like the arab MERS and the jap SARS and the false positives are beyond the actual positives. >virtually impossible Not if you know all your cousins and second-cousins.

Kikes play both sides, demoralizing anyone in either side for no articulated reason. Also i can't argue, i don't have the death certificates and even if i had them most shills would jump at the fact many deaths are marked down as COVID related even if they were not, which might be.

The objective isn't to convince you or anyone else of something, it's to confuse, exhaust, and trap until one is driven to give up. It's in their nature as a parasite subspecies to jam and subvert anything that may act as a social immune system.

Does Liberation Day count as a documentary? Laibach take the title of being the first (reports say some Finnish band in the 80s were the first) western music to hit the ears of the North Korean people with a short concert in Pyongyang. It seems the only place to buy it is on iTunes and a limited physical release, and I didn't see any torrents for it.

>>839 Thanks, I didn't know what to expect as I was expecting it to just be the concert with interspersed interviews and behind the scenes but was let down as they only play one song.
>>846 Basketball Diplomacy is a much more interesting watch. It's from yet unpozzed Vice. http://www.documentarymania.com/player.php?title=Basketball%20Diplomacy
12 Days of Tudor Christmas (1 episode; 2019) – good old Lucy Worsleys, kinda annoying but also tolerable and somehow still apolitical. As always a pretty good contemporary recreation and insight, this time of a 16th century Bong christmas season. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDREWMdU8Rg
The Road to The Phantom Menace (1 episode; 2020) – an unexpectedly good online amateur documentary about the 20 year lead up to the release of Star Wars episode I. All professional Star Wars documentaries are always a dreadful exercise in self importance, consisting almost entirely of boring, pointless interviews. This on the other hand gets to the heart of the topic, chronicling the actual history and cultural impact, and managing all that in just over an hour. I was surprised how much information was crammed in such a short time. It also shows how Yidsney NuWars just pale in comparison to the media super nova that the Phantom Menace was. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awfMg7RxZOU
Pyramids Builders: New Clues (1 episode; 2019) – a pretty good digest type of documentary, recapping all the main recent discoveries pertaining to the construction of the Great Pyramid in an orderly manner. There's no annoying presenter wasting your time with empty platitudes, no cringy dramatizations, it gets straight to the point. A good way to get yourself up to date with the subject. There are even a few experimental archeology, well, experiments thrown in for good measure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SujxAA_7iA

Foreign Parts (2010) is a documentary about the salvage yard and auto parts shops of Willets Point, Queens. This small blighted neighborhood sits behind Citi Field, the glistening new home of the New York Mets. Michael Bloomberg has big plans to redevelop the area, which would effectively wipe away the existing community. In recent years Harvard's Sensory Ethnography Lab has been responsible for an innovative new direction in documentary filmmaking, with the dizzying, immersive Leviathan as the best known example. Foreign Parts is more straightforward and accessible than I expected from SEL, as Willets Point locals regularly address the camera and co-director Véréna Paravel even appears onscreen. However, this film goes beyond mere observation by putting special emphasis on cataloging the unique environmental sounds -- a steering column dragging across asphalt, shoes plopping through puddles, the roar of forklifts and barrage of power tools, etc -- sounds that often drown out the people themselves.
The Secrets of Christ's Tomb (1 episode; 2017) – an exclusive NatGeo documentary about the emergent restoration of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, which was quite a big deal when it happened. I remember it was even on the news. Sadly it's too short and not as informative as it could have been (wasted too much time on pointless talking heads), but it'll do. I do like this specific branch of restoration documentaries. https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6w5n5l
Open file (1.79 MB 1280x720 The Lost Hokusai.png)
The Lost Hokusai (1 episode; 2017) – another restoration documentary, this time an excellent one from NHK. It's about trying to recreate in color the lost Hokusai painting of which only a single black and white photo exists. Cross-referencing different shades of gray based on his other works. Fascinating stuff and, in a very Japanese fashion, a rather relaxing experience as well. There are even nicely done animated sequences illustrating the life of Hokusai. Once again criminally short but highly recommended. https://proxyrarbg.org/torrent/po7vkg6

How Art Began (1 episode; 2019) – was a surprisingly comfy watch. Some artsy-fartsy artist visits different prehistoric caves with paintings and analyzes them. There's not much in terms of scientific content but the documentary has a sort of harmonious quality to it of a boomer just walking and looking at interesting stuff. https://ihavenotv.com/antony-gormley-how-art-began
Open file (396.80 KB 1280x720 Hitler's Steel Beast.png)
Hitler's Steel Beast (1 episode; 2016) – a pretty decent French documentary about Hitler's personal train. Thankfully it focuses on the train itself and not muh evil natsees or jews and is therefore watchable. I didn't even know there was a plot to assassinate Hitler by poisoning his drinking water reservoir in the train with a toxin that takes effect only after 6-7 days to fool his food taster. So many interesting stories from the war are still out there. https://daftsex.com/watch/309841411_456240745

Secret Tunnel Warfare (1 episode; 2016) – as the name implies, a documentary about WW1 trenches and tunnels. Specifically, an interesting plan by the Bongs to dig a series of tunnels underneath German positions, stuff them chock-full of explosives and blow them up in what became the largest pre-nuclear explosion in history, wiping out 10.000 men in one instant. WW1 was something else, man. https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6uompz
Leonardo da Vinci: The Restoration of the Century (1 episode; 2012) – this one is about restoring da Vinci's famous "The Virgin and Child with Saint Anne" painting. I guess all da Vinci's paintings are famous. Chronicling a process that took over a year. A pretty comfy French production and is itself almost entirely in french (with english subs and narration). https://daftsex.com/watch/-18262350_456239021
