Curated links to the very best documentaries

Hello Rocumentalists,
We’d like to kick off with an apology for hitting the mute button.  
It’s been unbelievably hectic over here in the build up to the holiday season. So regrettably, we’ve been unable to touch base in a while. Nevertheless, we hope you’ve had an excellent end to the year, so far.
To each and every new subscriber — thanks so much for joining the party and welcome aboard! 👊
In this special Boxing Day issue, we have four wonderful gifts lined up for your brain space.
Without further ado…
