Oooh, I thought of some more, these are uplifting and thought provoking:
Available to watch online via Netflix is "A Touch of Greatness". Great biography of a teacher who inspired his students through art, music, and Shakespeare.
Available for free to watch onlinehttp://www.pangeaday.org/pangeadayFilms.php
This was an amazing event several years ago that broadcast over internet, live around the world, many short videos of documentary style stories, and some fiction stuff too. (I especially loved the fem power of "Laura in action" --scroll down list on right, and Dancing Queen choked me up, and many others are incredible)
How could I have forgotten to mention "1 Giant Leap"? This is a wonderful documenary style film with TONS of world music. GREAT music soundtrack!
Then there is also www.globaloneness.org
which is another amazing FREE online to watch collection of stories about real people in our beautiful world. Living Service, Seva Cafe, Oursness, and The Land Owns Us, have stayed with me for a long time.
Enjoy and be lifted!
