300+ Mind Expanding Documentaries

I watch a lot of documentaries. I think they are incredible tools for learning and increasing our awareness of important issues. The power of an interesting documentary is that it can open our minds to new possibilities and deepen our understanding of the world.

On this list of mind expanding documentaries you will find different viewpoints, controversial opinions and even contradictory ideas. Critical thinking is recommended. I’m not a big fan of conspiracy documentaries but I do like films that challenge consensus reality and provoke us to question the everyday ideas, opinions and practices we usually take for granted.

openUReyes will no longer be playing documentary films to the public

Due to some of the management team moving out of Wellington and moving on in our own directions we will no longer be playing films at the Southern Cross Garden Bar. Thank you to everyone who attended one or many of the film nights over the last 7 years, it was a good run and we never expected the event to last so long. For now this website will remain online and continue to be updated often.

Every meaningful change starts with awareness. In our culture, we not only praise psychopaths in the highest positions of power, but in many cases, they became our role models. Challenge your beliefs! We have delved into the world of psychopaths and heroes and revealed something crucial about us.

WHERE: Southern Cross Garden Bar, 39 Abel Smith Street, Wellington NZ

Since the release of the groundbreaking documentary “What in the World are They Spraying?”, millions have woken up to the damaging effects from chemtrail/geoengineering programs. As a result, movements around the world are being formed to address these crimes. While many who were previously unaware of these programs are now taking action, the question now that is often asked is “Why” is this happening. Michael J. Murphy, Originator and Co-Producer of “What in the World are They Spraying?” in association with Barry Kolsky have produced “Why in the World are They Spraying?” which will answer that question.

Ten people featured in the movie, Thrive, issue statement dissociating themselves from the content

They are: Deepak Chopra, Duane Elgin, Amy Goodman, Paul Hawken, Edgar Mitchell, John Perkins, John Robbins, Elisabet Sahtouris, Vandana Shiva, and Adam Trombly

I have not heard of most of them, but those I have make it clear to me that the film must be saying something right if they are condemning it. Apparently they have a problem with me (DAVID ICKE) being in the film (lowers their credibility by perceived association, bless 'em) and the fact that it uses the dreaded word 'conspiracy' .


Under Occupation Toronto G20 - Documentary

Recently screened at the openUReyes free film nights, this is a fantastic documentary. Please watch this film and forward it to your networks.

Under Occupation: Toronto G20 Operation is an educational documentary that shows, in chronological order, the events that transpired over the G20 weekend in Toronto, Canada. While the mainstream media repeatedly broadcast images of burning police cars and broken windows, the cameras on the ground captured a far more terrifying story. Eyewitness video footage and firsthand accounts featured in this film tell a horrific tale of police brutality, mass arrests, secret laws and outrageous violations of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms
