UN climate experts say our future is threatened by rising global temperatures. We are already experiencing more heat waves, forest fires and flooding. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says it is crucial to take immediate action to reduce greenhouse gases. The European Union aims to reduce CO2 emissions and become carbon neutral by 2050, using the Green Deal as its road map. The German government has already agreed to more ambitious climate targets. By 2030, it aims to cut carbon emissions by 65 percent compared to 1990 levels. As the EU’s largest industrial nation and its biggest emitter of carbon dioxide, Germany could be a trailblazer for the rest of Europe. The German economy faces massive restructuring. Could Germany soon be carbon neutral? Or are the climate targets just a load of hot air?

Visiting North Korea | DW Documentary Few tourists manage to peek behind the iron curtain of North Korea’s dictatorship. But the journalist Luca Faccio managed to visit Kim Jong Un’s regime. Anyone venturing behind the world’s last Iron Curtain into North Korea will experience a very different country to the one we know only through the usual images of rocket launches and mass rallies. The country is ruled by the dictator Kim Jong Un, whom the people worship – or are made to worship – as a god-like father figure. Little is known about daily life in North Korea, because all images that reach the outside world have been censored by the government. Visitors rarely see evidence of oppression, enforced conformity and starvation in the rural population. Still, journalist Luca Faccio is able to offer some interesting insights into the isolated country – although, of course, government watchdogs are on his heels everywhere he goes. (posted in 2017)

Amazon Empire: The Rise and Reign of Jeff Bezos (2020)
A sobering look at the behemoth online retailer that has become too big to fail. The documentary pulls back the curtain on the questionable inner workings of Amazon and how the company deployed bellicose tactics to eliminate its competition. Amazon Empire lays bare how the retailer went from one of the largest online booksellers to becoming a one-stop online sales giant using an unheard-of cult-like allegiance to the customer is always right’ business model. The film also examines how Amazon’s constant analysis of its customer’s buying habits is raising queries into privacy issues. What filmmakers convey is how Amazon has ingrained itself into the consumer psyche and the impact it’s had on other online and physical retailers. The PBS program utilizes interviews with company insider’s past and present to lend insight into Amazon’s daunting expansion of power.
