Film is an incredibly powerful medium. It informs public opinion, and helps us to preserve pieces of our history. Some of the most influential writings on the potential social utility of non-fiction filmmaking were produced by Scottish born Canadian filmmaker John Grierson, who thought of film as a means of empowering the powerless, and calling attention to social ills. Grierson’s influence is still resonant, as evidenced by this collection of films that seek to enrich public discourses through their films.

Even before Brosnan officially resigned there have been gossips about a successor and about every actor imaginable has been on the lists of contenders: Hugh Jackman, Jude Law, Ewan McGregor, Orlando Bloom… The latter has recently signed up for a film about the younger years of James Bond.
