In April a documentary came out with a focus on the medical device industry. An industry that is one of the fastest growing and least discussed industries in America. The documentary takes a look at whether the industry is growing too fast, and whether or not the industry is serving the best interest of the people. Interesting things to think about when you consider the vast amounts of medical devices available, everything from pacemakers to birth control inserts. But while the documentary is focused on medical devices, we will do what we do here on Lessons from the Screen and focus on whether or not this documentary serves a purpose and adds anything worth its nearly 2 hour run time to the discussion.
A few days ago Netflix released a documentary detailing rise and journey of 4 social media stars. The film showcases from the perspective of the stars themselves, the ups and downs of being a social star in the modern age. What attracted me to this film was the idea that a conversation could be had and led by those that have achieved the fame and attention that so many people are craving on the internet. In this episode of Lessons from the Screen, we are going to be looking at the film like we always do and talking about somethings that can be taken away from it.

In this episode of Lessons from the Screen we are going to be looking at 9/11: Truth, Lies, and Conspiracies.
Released in 2013 and this documentary looked at the sex trafficking business from various angles.

In this episode of Lessons from the Screen, we are going to be giving our take on this documentary and the conversation in general and letting you know if this documentary is something that you should add to your tool kit.
