Dark Tourist

Most tourists like to visit popular sites and attractions, like beaches, stadiums and museums, while on vacation. There is a subset of tourism, however, that involves visiting places that are historically associated with death and tragedy. Journalist David Farrier focuses on that area of travel, known as dark tourism, in this docuseries. In each episode, Farrier travels to a different locale to visit destinations and have experiences that wouldn't be on most vacationers' bucket lists. He embeds himself in a death-worshipping cult in Mexico, sees tourists soaking up radiation left behind in Fukushima, meets vampires in New Orleans, and travels to the most-nuked place on Earth for atomic swimming and fishing.

The series that puts the spotlight on topical issues that impact people's lives. The docuseries - which features episodes that generally range from 15 to 20 minutes in length - aims to dig deeper into topics, questions and ideas that aren't often part of the daily news cycle. Among the subjects covered are the rise of cryptocurrency, why diets fail, and the world of K-pop music.

Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind

One hundred thousand years ago, at least six human species inhabited the earth. Today there is just one. Us. Homo sapiens. How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations, and human rights; to trust money, books, and laws; and to be enslaved by bureaucracy, time tables, and consumerism? And what will our world be like in the millennia to come?

In Sapiens, Professor Yuval Noah Harari spans the whole of human history, from the very first humans to walk the earth to the radical – and sometimes devastating – breakthroughs of the Cognitive, Agricultural, and Scientific Revolutions. Drawing on insights from biology, anthropology, paleontology, and economics, and incorporating full-color illustrations throughout the text, he explores how the currents of history have shaped our human societies, the animals and plants around us, and even our personalities. Have we become happier as history has unfolded? Can we even free our behavior from the legacy of our ancestors? And what, if anything, can we do to influence the course of the centuries to come?

Bold, wide-ranging, and provocative, Sapiens integrates history and science to challenge everything we thought we knew about being human: our thoughts, our actions, our heritage … and our future.

Mary Shelley

Este filme sem dúvida entrou para a lista de "must watch"! Mary Shelley conta parte da história da vida de Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, jovem que usou suas próprias experiências para escrever seu livro de maior sucesso: Frankenstein.

A história por si só é fascinante, e também se torna um resumo da história à época, com a participação de nomes que por si só já dariam outros filmes!

Recomendado!
