2 Awesome Short Documentaries

27 May

If you have a few minutes, check out these short documentaries. Well worth the quick view.

1) World’s Last Handwritten Newspaper: The Musalman is the world’s oldest Urdu-language newspaper and its also thought to be the last newspaper in the world that is handwritten every day. This is the story of how the newspaper is put together each day and what inspires the people to continue their work. There is no practical reason why they couldn’t have switched over to computer production.

2) If These Knishes Could Talk: So this video is not actually completed yet, but it envisions a documentary about the New York accent. Seems really interesting, and the trailer contains interviews with a lot of interesting people. If you like the trailer, consider donating a few bucks so the filmmaker can afford to finish the project.
