Worthy screen-time

I don’t own a TV. Haven’t binge watched anything ever. Meditation and contemplation, watching the birds and the sky, reading Dharma, praying for the well-being of all beings – these entertain me. Yet, while eating or often on Sunday, I’ll watch a portion of a documentary or docudrama, slowly and over a few days, enjoying a bit of history or culture or beauty.

Over the last several months, these seem to be “worthy screen-time.” Maybe you’ve seen them too. If not, they are highly recommended. Some are on Amazon Prime, others on Netflix (thank you to my daughter to gives me access). In no particular order:

  • My Octopus Teacher (Netflix)
  • Kiss the Ground (Netflix)
  • Aeronauts (Prime)
  • Radioactive (Prime)
  • Nomad (a Werner Herzog film)
  • The Trial of the Chicago 7 (Netflix)
  • A Life on Our Planet, a witnessing by David Attenborough
  • Our Planet with David Attenborough
  • Keith Richards, under the influence (Netflix)
  • The Other One: the long, strange trip of Bob Weir (Netflix)
  • The Peanut Butter Falcon (Prime)
  • Jazz by Ken Burns (PBS passport)
  • The National Parks by Ken Burns (Prime or PBS passport)
  • American Epic with Jack White et al (PBS passport or Prime)
