Title: The Bitter Sweet Truth About Tea (2015)

YouTube: https://youtu.be/M5N32TAiUMw

Contributed By: Julie Bennion

"I am learning a lot that I've never heard before on the history of tea production ~ including the enslavement of workers & the corruption of the english government, which caused 2 opium wars in China & certainly caused massive addiction to opium in that region. I'm pretty blown away, again, by the extreme ends we will use to feed our addictions... until I/we "will" Not to."

Title: Pawn Sacrifice (2014)

IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1596345/?ref_=nv_sr_1

Contributed By: Alexander Johan

"It's about the late chess legend Bobby Fischer and his deteriorating mental health state. I put it in fear of spirits, because I think paranoia is a very fear-based space, brought on by spirits purposefully exacerbating social and political fears."
