Lately, I have become very interested in documentaries (particularly those pertaining to Africa). I have compiled a list of my favourite ones (in no particular order) across a wide range of topics. Watching these documentaries have enabled me to understand the world a bit better & make connections between the past and the present.
I personally found them quite fascinating and thought-provoking - I hope you do too.
