Movies that change the world to a better place 2/2

Dear friends,

Today it's counting down 26 days to freedom, 3rd day of lockdown in Singapore. Tomorrow it's a Good Friday and a long weekend holiday that seems like it'll never end :-D 

Last Thursday, I shared 6 lists of movies in my previous post.

So here are another 5 more inspiring movies 📹 from my list, to share with you over your stay home weekend. 

6.The Salt of the Earth
Follow 40 years of footsteps of Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado who can say a thousand words through his lens. His words are like magic pills, turning an ordinary me to seriously consider picking up photography. ps: My favourite part of this documentary is when he returned to where he grew up and transformed a piece of dry land into a forest.

7.Dark WatersI can't thank Mark Rufullo enough to make this true event into a movie to reveal the scray truth about Dupont. From our kitchen non-stick frying pans to bathroom products, it's made from a toxic chemical called C-8 or PFOA. This chemical is so deadly that with prolonged exposure, it could cost your life.

8.The Devil We Know
This is probably one of the documentaries which everyone should watch. After watching Dark Waters, I found this documentary, The Devil We Know, starring the actual people who suffered from PFOA. Do you know 99.9% of creatures and ourselves have unknowingly consumed PFOA (a deadly chemical produced by Dupont). These items are still used in our daily products such as non-stick frying pan, floss, fabric and etc.

More fact:

•Do also check The Devil We Know official website to find out which items contain the toxic chemicals which are harmful to your body.

9. Honeyland
The Last female beekeeper - Hatidze in North Macedonia is using honey in exchange for her daily bread and butter. To practice a sustainable relationship between her and the bees, she would only harvest half of the honey and wait for months for the next harvest. And she taught everything she knew to her new Gypsy neighbour. 

With many mouths to feed, her neighbours break the invisible rules between them and the bees and harvested more honey than they should in a short period of time.  As a result, their actions killed the entire bee population in the village. 

This pure and beautiful movie reminds us that our choice for speed does come with a price. Are we ready to pay the ultimate cost?
