10. The Act Of Killing. Released in 2012, the film follows Anwar Congo, an Indonesian gangster who took part in the Indonesian killings of 1965-66, an anti-communist purge in which at least half a million people were killed. Of these, Anwar freely admits that he personally murdered around 1,000 people.
9. The Dying Rooms. Released in 1995, this British television documentary explored one of the consequences of China’s population control measures informally known as the ‘one child policy. With a rule allowing the conception of a second child if the first was female or disabled, parents across China sought to exploit a loophole which forgave the death of a child from neglect (as opposed to ‘directly’ killing them), and state-run ‘orphanages’ began to be established. Within these facilities, parents would leave their children to be neglected by staff, who would leave babies and children alone without food or water until they died.
8. The Hammer Maniacs. This Chilean documentary explores the twisted minds behind the most shocking murders in Ukrainian history, the so-called Dnepropetrovsk Maniacs. Killing 21 people in the summer of 2007, Viktor Sayenko and Igor Suprunyuck gained notoriety for having filmed some of the brutal murders on their phones and uploading them online, with one infamous film which showed the death of Sergei Yatzenko appearing on shock sites under the title ‘3Guys1Hammer’.
7. Into The Abyss. First shown in 2011, this film examines a triple homicide which occurred in Conroe, Texas and, more pointedly, the two men convicted of the crime. While the film does cover the murders, the real focus is on Jason Burkett (life sentence), Michael Perry (death penalty) and the prison system itself.
6. The Cove. One of the most-watched and controversial environmental films of recent years, takes place in Taiji, Japan. Each year, in an effort which is closely guarded by local and national officials, dolphins and porpoises are driven into an isolated cove and trapped there, with some captured and sold to aquariums around the world.
5. Jesus Camp. Based in Devils Lake in the rural US state of North Dakota, the organisers of this camp fervently believe that modern society is not only too secular, but irredeemably corrupt. As such, they train camp attendees to be fully-fledged soldiers within an ‘army of God’, with exercises from pledging allegiance to the ‘Christian flag’ to mass ‘praying in tongues’ sessions.
4. Louie Theroux Behind Bars. This hour-long show sees Louie exploring one of the world’s toughest prisons, the infamous San Quentin maximum security jail in California. Speaking candidly with gang members, sex offenders, serial murderers and prison guards, as well as inmates who are themselves at risk from their fellow convicts, Theroux sheds a light not only on the individuals behind the orange jumpsuits and prisoner numbers, but also on a system that will likely see most of San Quentin’s residents return multiple times.
3. 102 Minutes That Changed America. This documentary presents a harrowing look at what occurred on September 11 2001 in New York City, from the moment the first plane hit the World Trade Center to the eventual collapse of the twin towers. It has so movingly communicated the atmosphere at and around Ground Zero, from initial assumptions of an horrific accident to eventual realisation that New York was under attack.
2. Earthlings. Drawing controversy for its no-holds-barred comparisons between slavery and animal-dependent industry, Earthlings uses hidden cameras to tell the story of what really goes on inside laboratories, abattoirs, pet stores and animal shelters alike.
1. The Bridge. Born out of one year’s worth of filming the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco in 2004, The Bridge is ostensibly a film about suicide, several of which were captured on tape during the filming process. Much of the footage challenges the popular perception of suicidal individuals, including one man who was jogging, laughing and talking on his cellphone, before putting his things away and leaping to his death.
My penny’s worth of the most disturbing documentaries of issues and individuals of real-life, past and present. Whatever your stance on some of the topics, these film-makers have managed to produce films whose content and style will make you reconsider your outlook on today’s society…
