Dear Zachary Documentary

dearzachary

This is one of the best documentaries I’ve seen in a long time. It will probably bring you to tears. It’s incredibly sad, but uplifting in it’s own way. The end is a complete twist.

Shortly after Dr. Andrew Bagby was murdered, his ex-girlfriend gave birth to their child, Zachary. One of Andrew’s close friends created Dear Zachary, compiling interviews with friends and family, to serve as a cinematic scrapbook for his son to watch when he’s older.

That’s all I’ll say about the plot. Don’t read more online – just watch it (available on netflix)! I went into it not knowing anything about it, and I’m glad I did.

AFTER you’ve watched the documentary, check out this short video to see how the movie was made and what happened after it was released. Pretty interesting.

I always enjoy watching a good documentary. Let me know if you have any good suggestions! For my 36 in 365 challenge, I set out to watch at least three, so I still need to watch two more…
