Journeyman Pictures has uploaded nearly 4000 videos to YouTube. Many of these are trailers for the documentaries they sell, but they have also posted hundreds of full-length videos. Most are for short documentarie, but there are a lot of features too. It's somewhat daunting to explore, but the playlists are a good place to start, and so are the shows: Features, Shorts, News and Savouring Europe, a European travelogue series. Here's a few interesting ones: Gastronauts, about French culinary students working to make astronaut food more palatable, Demon Drummers, about student Kodo drummers, India's Free Lunch, about the effects of free school lunches on Indian society, The Twitter Revolution, about YouTube and Twitter's role in the 2009 Iranian uprising, Europe's Black Hole, about Transnistria, the breakaway region of Moldova, Small Town Boy, about a gay male carnival queen in a small town in England, The Vertigo of Lists, Umberto Eco talks about the ubiquity of lists in modern culture and Monsters from the Id, about scientists in the science fiction films of the Fifties.

Excellent find! I'll have something to do until well into 2012, then.

I loved the one about the free school lunches for all kids in India. The meals all looked so healthy and delicious. Nothing like the junk that American schools serve.

India's Free Lunch

When I clicked that, I was disappointed not to receive a 404.

Europe's Black Hole alone is an excellent post - watch it, what a fucking nightmare.

This is great - the school lunch film is very heartwarming, I love the sign on the municipal building: "Government work is Gods work!"

This is great. I've seen a couple of these before, but never connected them. Thanks, Kattullus.
