Docs_2

HBO Documentary Films® offers a full spectrum of stellar, non-fiction programming by celebrated documentary filmmakers. The powerful and uncompromising films are among the most critically-acclaimed and award-winning programs within the documentary genre.

Now you can get the latest titles in the catalog of HBO Documentary Films® including:

Right America Feeling Wronged – In Right America Feeling Wronged Emmy®-winning HBO® documentary filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi delivers a snapshot of some of the more vocal conservative Americans, who saw their hopes and dreams evaporate in the wake of a decisive Democratic victory for Barack Obama.

Power of Good – Winner of the 2002 International Emmy® Award, this documentary tells the story of Sir Nicholas George Winton MBE who, in 1939, saved the lives of 669 children, most of them Jewish, from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia by bringing them across Hitler’s Germany to his native Britain.

Death on a Factory Farm – There’s a war being waged in the U.S. today over how we treat the animals that end up on our dinner plates. More than ten billion animals are raised for consumption in the U.S. every year, most on industrialized “factory farms.” Virtually no federal laws mandate the humane treatment of farm animals. Because most state laws are weak and/or rarely enforced, animal-rights groups have turned to undercover investigators to help expose abuse on factory farms. This is the story of one such investigator’s disturbing probe into a factory farm. Following the success of the 2006 documentary Dealing Dogs, directors Tom Simon and Sarah Teale return to HBO® to tell the story of an animal-rights investigator, “Pete,” who goes undercover on a factory hog farm to explore a whistleblower’s allegations.
