Written / directed by Giovanna Morales Vargas, A Perfect 14 is a new documentary that will explore the world of plus-size modelling through the experiences of three plus-size models. Namely Elly Mayday, Laura Wells and Kerosene Deluxe. 

I want an inside look into the way the world of fashion modelling is being forced to change for the better.

I can’t denied that it took me a few seconds (OK, maybe just under half a minute) to realise the title ‘The Perfect 14‘ is referencing the old adage ‘The Perfect 10.’

A Perfect 14 Release Dates: March 31st, 2020 (US)…

John Lewis – Good Trouble is a new documentary about American politician and civil rights leader John Robert Lewis.

Directed by Dawn Porter, Good Trouble offers a close look at Lewis’s 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on health care reform, civil rights, gun control, voting rights and immigration.

Good Trouble uses rare archival footage and interviews from both the past and present day that feature political leaders, Congressional colleagues, and other people who figure prominently in Lewis’s life. I.e. Eric Holder, Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, to name just a few.

Note: This trailer has been removed from the internet for some reason. Will update once republished.

Something tells me I’m going to feel as impressed, thankful and inspired as I was after watching RGB (2018). I can’t wait.

From director Halina Dyrschka, Beyond The Visible – Hilma af Klint is a new documentary about the world’s first abstract artist, Hilma af Klint. A Swedish female artist who for many years was nowhere to be found in art history books.

Today Klint is abstractions biggest discovery and attracting millions of fans worldwide.

Looking at the beautiful images in this trailer and the ones on the website of the Guggenheim Museum NY, Klint is officially one of my favourites.

I’ll be watching for the truth and definitely to feast my eye s on all those colours and shapes.

Dr. Goldstein’s holistic treatments are what pet owners seek as a last hope after other vets have given up.

I’m interested in Dr. Goldstein’s story and methods. But mainly, I just really want o see a bunch of happy endings for all the dogs and their desperate owners.

Lastly, isn’t the music in this trailer great?

Bring on the happy endings!

Directed by Liam Firmager; key featured artists include Suzi Quatro herself; Alice Cooper, Joan Jett, Debbie Harry, Cherie Currie, KT Tunstall…

New documentary Babies is all about the astounding story of a baby’s first year of life, thanks to a decade of groundbreaking science…

I’m definitely in because all I know about a baby’s experience once they’re born is that is that at first they can only see in black and white.

In other words, I really need this documentary for my general knowledge. All the cuteness is a welcome bonus.

Co-written / directed by Adam Bolt, Human Nature is a new documentary about the biggest tech revolution of the 21st Century. A biological technology called CRISPR – one that provides unprecedented control over the basic building blocks of life.

From curing diseases, reshaping the biosphere to designing our own children and more…

CRISPR had me wondering about just how much more time data has as ‘the most valuable asset on earth,‘ (The Great Hack (2019). Then I realised that CRISPR is data.

I’m very interested in how the tech came to be and all the arguments for and against.

Featured contributors and experts include  David Baltimore, Jill Banfield, Rodolphe Barrangou  Aliza Ben-Baruch, Joab Camarena, Alta Charo, Emmanuelle Charpentier, Paul Dabrowski and Jennifer Doudna.

From lions, Elephants, bats and more Night On Earth is narrated by Samira Wiley who’s most well known for playing Poussey Washington in Of Orange Is The New Black

I’m in for the animals (especially the big cats) and the beautiful images.

I wonder if this film will include foxes. I see them more often than I’d like at night, in London. Let’s just say that I’m glad they’re quite easily startled by people.
