    hi, I am strongly interested in watching documentaries. I love this kinds of films specially the social ones. I have seen some of them that were produced by Mechael Moore a famous producer in america in addition to some of my own country film maker like Makhmalbaf and Kiarostami. I suggest you to watch them in your leisure times. these films make us aware of social critics and challenges.
