  2. Thanks for the fantastic list! I gave Netflix up for Lent, as I found it was my dark hole leading me away from both productivity and creativity. I’m eager to find some more inspiring things to take my attention and can’t wait to watch these films.

  3. Miss Representation is such a great documentary. I can’t wait to check out the other recommendations on your list!

    If you haven’t seen it, “Picture Me” is a fantastic documentary about the modelling industry. It’s done by Sara Ziff who is now the executive director of Model Alliance, a non-profit that advocates for fair labor standards for models, particularly those who are underage.

  4. I love this! Thank you so much for sharing! I am really excited to go and watch happy! If I may suggest the doc “I am” by Tom Shadyac is seriously awesome, for anyone looking to get centered and feel inspired to just BE , thrive and create together. I love your blog!
