When we aren’t busy making documentaries we try to spend time watching documentaries. It’s not always easy, but it has gotten easier since doc|UWM’s project director, Ryan, started posting links to free online documentaries. It’s all via his Tumblr – DocuHoliday and we’ll feature some of the more choice selections here on our blog. You can also find the whole lineup of documentaries that presented by DocuHoliday in our blog’s sidebar. Enjoy.
