Must-see online videos: Op Docs from the New York Times
Short-form documentaries by notable filmmakers both established and emerging covering a whole range topics from current affairs to historical subjects. The film that led me to the series was The Umbrella Man by Errol Morris. It's a short about the mysterious man holding the umbrella at the location and moment at Dealy Plaza when President Kennedy was assassinated. The explanation for the presence of this man will be a surprise to most but will hardly appease conspiracy buffs. Highly recommended viewing.
