"Documentary is about discovering, being open, learning, and following curiosity."
Like a full-length picture, Documentaries do not have a definite story that ends on an onset but they are complicated, 
inspiring and beautifully crafted cinematic experience which can touch far more hearts and change life in extraordinary ways.
