Docu-Dramas That Are Worth Watching

May 10, 2007

Here’s a list of Docu-Dramas that may make you think, laugh, cry, and inspire you to think about life in a different way!


The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill is an poignent story about a bohemian who develops a special relationship with a flock of wild parrots set loose in urban San Francisco. This film will make you laugh, cry, and think about man’s relationship with nature. 


Why We Fight is a thought-provoking essay on why America has gone to war in the past and present. The director formulated the idea after watching a farewell speech done by Dwight D. Eisenhower, who talks about the Military Industrial Complex.  This docu-drama will give you another view on why America is at war in the middle-east. 


Mad Hot Ballroom is an inspiring film, which follows several New York public school students as they practice for a citywide ballroom dance competition.  The often humorously candid and real life perspectives of the students and their teachers will give viewers an inside look at the multi-cultural life of New York.


Hobart’s Shakespeareans is an enlightening film about how a love for Shakespeare and a dedicated teacher can make a difference in our cynical world.  Rafe Esquith is an inner city elementary teacher in LA, who inspires his immigrant students with his love for music and Shakespeare’s Hamlet.  This documentary will inspire educators or anyone working with the youth of America.
