Shows, Documentaries & other things to explore

I think one documentary that stood out for me is Free Solo. I was truly blown to see how focus, determination and discipline can make the impossible seem so easy and possible! One of the best I have seen ever – an unforgettable experience!  Watch it on a big screen if you can – it is shot beautifully and also won the Oscar for the best non-fiction 🙂  – Poonam Choksi
