The documentaries shown in this class are diverse, thought-provoking, educational, and informational. I attempt to get Documentaries with English Subtitles. Please sign into class by 2:45 pm. Our classes run on Tuesdays from 3 pm until at least 4:30 pm. Some of the documentaries will last 2 hours plus time for some discussion. Generally, the classes will run longer to allow for discussion, but please feel free to sign off whenever necessary. NOTE: Please do not expect a 4G, surround-sound experience, rather it may have more of a "Drive-In Theater" feel to it. It is also helpful to shut down all programs besides Zoom on your computer, iPad, or iPhone to help minimize any lag. Below are the upcoming documentaries dates, links to trailers, YouTube videos and actual films (if available) that we are going to show. We will have a vote for the last few classes and suggestions are more than welcome.See you on Tuesdays at 2:45 pm – movies to start promptly at 3pm.
