Glawogger Masterpiece Available

Time for a commercial – to illustrate through just one example that many of the creative documentary films reviewed on are available to be watched whenever you want and for little money:

“ is a new documentary channel offering the very best director-led films on demand, via streaming.The films are made by a passionate, international group of socially committed people who have a mission to try and make sense of the world. They illuminate our times and help to support a fully-functioning society. But they are hard to see. Although some are shown by public service and public-minded tv broadcasters, they tend to be on specialist channels, in the corners of schedules and rarely repeated.

Many films play at international festivals, and on occasion are theatrically released. But how often have you read a great review of a film and then not had the chance to watch it? We know that audiences expect to find what they want, when they want, at a time and price that suits them. That’s where comes in.a new documentary channel offering the very best director-led films on demand, via streaming.”

End of commercial: The reason choosing specifically this one is the advertising they do for a new title, the masterpiece of Austrian director Michael Glawogger (photo), “Workingman’s Death”. As convincing as his “Megacities” by one of the real auteurs in modern documentary. Take a look at the trailer.
