  1. What is Documentary Lovers?

    Documentary Lovers is a place where you can watch and share documentaries online. We scour the web looking for documentaries that are openly available to embed through websites such as youtube and google videos.

  2. What is a documentary?

    Documentary films constitute a broad category of nonfictional motion pictures intended to document, in one fashion or another, some aspect of reality, primarily for the purposes of instruction or maintaining a historical record. Although “documentary film” originally referred to movies shot on film stock, it has subsequently expanded to include video and digital productions that can be either direct-to-video or made for a television series. Documentary, as it applies here, works to identify a “filmmaking practice, a cinematic tradition, and mode of audience reception” that is continually evolving and is without clear boundaries.

    The word “documentary” was first applied to films of this nature in a review of Robert Flaherty’s film Moana (1926), published in the New York Sun on 8 February 1926 and written by “The Moviegoer”, a pen name for documentarian John Grierson.
