From Woodstock, to coral reefs, to the Holocaust- These are the top 50 documentaries of all time

Entertainment

Chasing Coral (2017)

(STACKER) — Great documentaries often give access and illumination to stories that would otherwise go untold. The subject of a documentary can be anything from a single individual’s life to a broader political event, and the effect of the films range from uplifting to devastating.

The director of the legendary nine-hour documentary “Shoah,” which focused on the Holocaust, refused to use any archival footage and only used his own original interviews, which partly explains why the film took 11 years to make- and lands the film in a top 5 slot on our list.

Other documentaries that appear on our list are uplifting and tell stories of some of humanity’s greatest achievements, like “Apollo 11,” which features footage from the famous space mission that was the first to land humans on the moon. You’ll find “Apollo 11” sitting steady, ranked in the top 25 of the films below.

Keep reading to discover, and judge for yourself, the top 50 best documentary films of all time.

Unlike the nature documentaries we’ve grown accustomed to, with melodious narration by the likes of Sir David Attenborough or Sigourney Weaver, “Microcosmos” has almost no narration, and is instead a showcase of nature in its purest form.https://0d534a3d7f1c98498ef1c4f8f695f124.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html
