New to DocPlay in May

The Mystery of DB Cooper (May 4)

Who is DB Cooper? This roller-coaster ride of a documentary brings to life the stories of four individuals fervently believed by their family and friends to be the mystery man who, in 1971, hijacked a Boeing 727, then leapt from the plane, and was never heard from again.

The Other Fellow (May 4)

An energetic exploration of male identity via the lives, personalities, and adventures of a diverse band of men across the globe all sharing the same name – James Bond.

Buena Vista Social Club (May 11)

Traveling from the streets of Havana to the stage of Carnegie Hall, this revelatory and beloved 1999 documentary captures a forgotten generation of Cuba’s brightest musical talents as they enjoy an unexpected encounter with world fame.

The Meaning of Hitler (May 15)

Offering an interrogation of our culture’s fascination with Hitler and Nazism, this conversation-starting doc is set against the backdrop of the current rise of white supremacy, the normalisation of antisemitism, and the weaponisation of history itself.

Earlier this month DocPlay added more than 500 hours of “the world’s best adventure films” from Garage.

“Alongside the high-quality documentary features, series and shorts they know and love, our DocPlay subscribers can now experience a vast selection of adventure films – guaranteed to kick their adrenaline up a notch – from their comfort of their home, Madman Entertainment CEO Paul Wiegard says.

The 400+ titles include:

  • Facing Monsters, in which director Bentley Dean (Tanna) follows enigmatic West Australian ‘slab wave’ surfer Kerby Brown as he prepares to surf an unprecedented swell in the unforgiving Southern Ocean.
  • Dirtbag – The Legend Of Fred Beckey follows the fearless and prolific 94-year-old mountain climber for 10 years as he looks for his next peak to conquer.
  • The 1966 classic The Endless Summer, surfer documentarian Bruce Brown’s seminal account of American surfers Mike Hynson and Robert August quest for the perfect wave.
  • When We Were Kings, the Oscar-winning chronicle of the 1974 ‘Rumble in the Jungle’ heavyweight boxing match in Zaire.
