Silverdocs - Saturday recap

The final day for Silverdocs (Sunday has films, but none will be seen by this writer) turned out to be short but sweet. Two excellent documentaries finished up the festival and they are certainly worth the price of admission:

Into Eternity - as artful a film as you could imagine in this investigation of a permanent solution to dealing with nuclear waste. Though it might come off as pretentious at times, it does an excellent job helping audiences fully comprehend just how long 100,000 years actually is (that's the amount of time it takes for the waste to no longer be harmful to humans).

The Tillman Story - why would a story about one soldier's death be so interesting? Well it's a story of government cover ups and lies in order to generate war propaganda. It's a great documentary from an established filmmaker and is worth watching whether you know the story or not.


Stay tuned for a full festival wrap up in the coming days!

The Tillman Story is really interesting! Just by reading the information provided in this post, one can truly say that there are myriad things to learn just by watching it. That's the beauty of documentary films; you'll get in touch with reality coupled with artistic presentation. No wonder Gadi Leshem produced quality documentary films for the viewers to learn and be entertained. Thanks for sharing!
