A documentary is a non-fictional, motion picture intended to “document” reality, for the purpose of education or maintaining history record.
Or so they say.
It is absolutely noteworthy to revisit some of the most brilliant documentaries ever made, to really see how far we’ve come. Documentaries now are made in ultra-HD, super-4K and have never been more visual than they currently are.
At OSN, we love our share of documentaries and factual TV shows. There’s no entertainment like edutainment. A documentary is a filmmaking practice, a cinematic ode to the audience; it is ever evolving and is constantly being redefined every year.
Documentaries are short or long form video that is engaging, captivating, visual and informative. There are some documentaries however, that only serve for inspiring and motivating the audience. These documentaries are termed ‘human interest stories’. Documentaries and Factual TV shows showcase a side of the world (or topic) that you haven’t seen before. With the imminent boom of docu-features all over the internet, the audience has finally grown to appreciate and consume more factual TV series than ever before.
Now let’s dive right into some of the most unmissable documentaries you can watch on OSN this June:
