Documentary Film is a broad category of visual expression that is based on the attempt,
in one fashion or another, to document reality. Knowledge comes in different ways through our five senses. Hearing,
watching, touching, smelling and tasting are the only doorways to the outer world. The wise men say that if something
is not truly experienced with all our five senses, the experience will be partial, not total. Therefore in a way almost
all our gained knowledge through life is partial. And maybe they are right.
If we follow that analogy, gaining knowledge through several senses simultaneously is better than through just one. So,
educating through watching educational videos, in this case documentaries
, is really a total
different experience than educating only on books. Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to undermine the books in any way.

We always have to keep in mind that a Documentary, after all, can tell lies and it can tell lies
because it lays claim to a form of veracity which fiction doesn't. Some of the documentaries are made just to
discredit some particular person, party, organization, system etc, but most of them here on TDF are non biased,
without prejudice and worth watching.
