Question by The John Phenomenon: Do you think that documentaries are effective? do documentaries inspire you enough to act on a certain issue?
do you think that documentaries make a difference? for example, after watching a docu like an inconvenient truth, did it inspire you to “go green?” Or would watching a docu about poverty, inspire you to help the poor? I’ve seen countless documentaries that changed my perspective on certain issues, but never inspired me to do anything. I dont’ know if this is a personal problem or just the passivity that much of today’s youth is developing. What are your views on this?
Answer by Cassanova
I personally love documentaries, but when watching them I know they aren’t always accurate. You can’t take everything they tell you as pure truth. Everything with a grain of salt, and I guess why they usually don’t make me change myself either. I also tend to watch ones like Jesus Camp which don’t really apply to me or how i live.
