Films Changing the World: Must-see docs revealing staggering new perspectives and stories.

The career of arguably the greatest working American documentary filmmaker began 50 years ago with a controversial masterpiece. Frederick Wiseman’s Titicut Follies took an unflinching look at the State Prison for the Criminally Insane in Bridgewater, Massachusetts and exposed the mistreatment, abuse and humiliation undergone by its patients. As a result, the film was banned in the U.S. until a judge overturned the ruling in 1991. Now recognized as one of the great American films of the 1960s, Titicut Follies reveals the moral neglect that a society is willing to tuck away from itself behind closed doors. http://ow.ly/hPbI30aB9fQ
