New Films...

Docuseek2 continues to grow — we have added over 35 titles since the beginning of the year from Bullfrog Films and Icarus Films.

Of particular note:

  • The four-title Standing on Sacred Ground series from Bullfrog Films, about indigenous people from eight different cultures standing up for their traditional sacred lands in defense of cultural survival, human rights and the environment.
  • The acclaimed Middletown series from Academy-Award winner Peter Davis — a six-film portrait of a prototypical middle American community, Muncie, Indiana.
  • The remarkable first two parts of The Battle of Chile. Judy Stone of the San Francisco Chronicle called it "a landmark in the presentation of living history on film." Docuseek2 is the only legal site online that streams The Battle of Chile.
  • New titles from dGenerate Films, the source for independent documentary film from China, providing unique, personal views of the world's most populous country. We have created The dGenerate Films Collection to highlight this significant group of films.
  • Plus another 15 recent releases from Icarus Films.
