Cool lists, I’m frightfully uneducated when it comes to docs.
Cool to see you include this:
“Project Grizzly (Peter Lynch, 1996)”
Haven’t seen it, but my geography teacher’s father produced it 😐

I don’t think I have ever before read anyone mention The Gleaners and I. I adore that film and it seems to have slipped under too many radars.
