To celebrate the Dogwoof Weekender at the ICA we’re asking you to share the documentaries that change how you see the world.

Documentaries can shine a light into places we can’t see, show life through someone else’s eyes, reveal the human stories behind the events that shape our world and give us an insight into the personalities of the compelling figures of our time, from skateboarders to rappers, politicians to freedom fighters.

The digital age has democratised documentary filmmaking and empowered a new generation to tell stories from all corners of the earth, but whatever the subject or whoever the filmmaker, the best documentaries have the power to change how we see the world.

To celebrate the Dogwoof Weekender, a series of documentaries at London’s ICA September 26-28, we want to hear about the documentaries that changed how you view the world.

All you have to do is tweet: “@HuckMagazine <name of film> changed my life.” before Thursday September 25.

One winner will receive a weekend pass to watch all seven films showing at the Dogwoof Weekender and we will include the most interesting entries (with personal statements from you) in a ‘Huck’s lifechanging documentaries’ post on Friday September 26.

The Dogwoof Weekender at the ICA – September 26-28

Dogwoof, the UK’s leading documentary distributor, take over the ICA for a programme of seven films over three days that give us a sense of where documentary filmmaking is right now.

The broad selection takes in issues as diverse as LGBT rights, colonialism and show business, to art, religion, economic crisis and homelessness.

Huck’s top picks include Concerning Violence (trailer above) directed by Goran Olson, featuring narration by Ms. Lauryn Hill and Manakamana from Stephanie Spray and Pacho Velez, that documents the journey of pilgrims in the Nepalese jungle.
