Oh! Wonderful, Terrible, Crazy World

As we live our day to day lives, we sometimes forget how amazing it is that the world really is. We forget the people, the places, the everything that can take our breath away.

It may not be possible to enjoy the world all of the time, but we can certainly try to enjoy it as much as possible.

As pictures speak louder than words for many of us, below is a collection of three movies that are free to watch by streaming online. I have included the trailers as well as links to the full length films.

All of them capture a little essence of this world and the beauty it contains. Between the three of them, they also show how astonishing and heinous it can be.

Life in a Day

On July 24, 2010, thousands of people around the world uploaded videos of their lives to YouTube to take part in Life in a Day, a historic cinematic experiment to create a documentary film about a single day on earth.

This is life in it’s purest, most beautiful form. I love it beyond words.

Shot in 54 countries and 120 locations over 217 days, Home presents the many wonders of planet Earth from an entirely aerial perspective.

This documentary is both beautiful, terrible, and thought provoking.

A collection of expertly photographed scenes of human life and religion.

Very few wordless movies can keep you entertained for quite so long.

    You should definitely take a look at ‘Ashes and Snow’ as well.
