Fighting in the Age of Loneliness: Supercut edition (2018) [1:56:38]
Throughout its history, mixed martial arts have served as a refuge for people disillusioned and confounded by the world at large.

In 2010, Danish director Mads Brugger received an email from a stranger who had seen a documentary he had made about North Korea. He asked if Mads would be interested in making a new film about his quest to become a member of his local North Korean 'friendship' association in Denmark to enable him to travel to Pyongyang undercover.

> In the summer of 2017, in the Toronto neighbourhood of Parkdale, over 300 tenants living across 12 apartment buildings went on rent strike to protest a wave of rent increases that would have displaced members of their community.

Feels Good Man - the Sundance award-winning documentary
"Artist Matt Furie, creator of the comic character Pepe the Frog, begins an uphill battle to take back his iconic cartoon image from those who used it for their own purposes." [1] Just watched this today and as someone who managed to stay away from 4chan all these years it was a very insightful look into the origins of the meme. 1.
