    Economic Freedom in Action: Changing Lives
    Produced by the Free to Choose Network. This documentary is based on the Fraser Institute's Economic Freedom of the World 2012 Annual Report and profiles five stories of entrepreneurs from around the world who have risen out of poverty and built better futures for themselves and their communities due to increased economic freedom. From honey bees in Chile to a Paul Frank store in Slovakia, from a food distribution service in Zambia to a North Korean defector who serves as a venture capitalist to his fellow defectors in South Korea, this film shows economic freedom in action, and how it is transforming lives and entire nations.

    The Great Global Warming Swindle
    If you have shown or thought about showing Al Gore’s film An Inconvenient Truth in your classroom, you must think about showing The Great Global Warming Swindle for balance. Aired by UK’s Channel 4 on 8 March 2007, The Great Global Warming Swindle is a controversial documentary film which presents arguments opposing the predominant scientific opinion on climate change (i.e. that human activity is the primary cause of global warming).

    Commanding Heights: The Battle for the World Economy
