Not a nature documentary, but an animated film with strong themes of nature: “Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind” is one of my favorite films


thank you

There are so many! Is there any particular category or genre you’re looking for? And what streaming services do you have (if any)? Netflix has quite a few good BBC nature documentaries, Disney+ has Disneynature and National Geographic, and CuriosityStream has a lot of good French- and German-produced nature shows that I haven’t seen elsewhere. Just a few favorites:


Not really a particular category or genre. I have Prime and a Firestick which allows me to get almost every movie/tv show for free. That’s why I didn’t share what I had in this post because I probably will be able to find it. Thanks!

Looked it up! Seems like a good one… will watch it soon!

I can’t find that one on Google! What is it about?

An anime film! Is it good?

Which Language?

I haven’t seen the movie, but I read the books and thought it was pretty good.

Yes, as absolutely every anime movie by Hayao Miyazaki. Every single one made by him is a masterpiece and often tells about conflict of humans and nature. Sometimes indirectly.


March of the Penguins
Winged Migration (Watch only on a big screen. On a small screen it is not worthwhile).
Blue Planet


Got it!

Thanks for letting me know! Added to watch list.
