Recommended. The information is very appealing, as is the approach to the storytelling. It never gets boring and uses multiple filmmaking techniques to tell the story visually and orally. It is informative and very appealing to its target audience. The development is beautiful in style. It is a perfectly constructed documentary. It starts with our origins which serves as exposition. It transitions to rising action which would be the WWI segment. Then it goes to a climax regarding the Pentagon Papers and concludes nicely. It employs beautiful animated work and filmmaking magic.
