While science interests many, fiction interests so many more people. Today is celebrated as Science Fiction Day.

The event’s date honors the legendary science fiction author Isaac Asimov’s birth. Isaac Asimov, an American author and biochemistry professor at Boston University, was born Isaak Yudovich Ozimov on January 2, 1920. His science fiction writings and popular scientific books are what are most well-known about him.

On this day we are sharing some of the fiction documentaries that you must watch.

My Octopus teacher

A female octopus casts a spell on a diver who starts diving in a kelp forest off the coast of South Africa. It is more than simply another wildlife movie; it is a movie about playfulness, curiosity, and trust. Foster makes some delightfully weird comments as a result of his careful study and emotional investment; nonetheless, humans and octopuses are not at all similar to one another in any of the ways he suggests. The film’s larger message, however, is far more intriguing and, when you stop to think about it, even more radical: sympathy and intelligence can span a gap of evolutionary aeons.

Night on earth

This movie tells five storylines, each of which involves a cab journey and is set in a different international location. While a Parisian taxi driver (Isaach De Bankolé) must deal with some boisterous African diplomats, no-nonsense Los Angeles taxi driver Corky (Winona Ryder) has an interesting customer in the form of a Hollywood casting agent (Gena Rowlands). Among the other stories, the Italian cab journey where eccentric driver Gino (Roberto Benigni) makes a vivacious confession to a sick priest stands out.

Into the inferno

In an effort to comprehend man’s relationship with one of nature’s most terrible wonders, Werner Herzog and volcanologist Clive Oppenheimer travel the world and see volcanoes in Indonesia, Ethiopia, and even North Korea. How individuals search for meaning in the world to the point of obsession is one of Herzog’s big themes. It turns out that volcanoes are an excellent topic for him to explore, and he does it with a lot of charm and dramatic flair.

Unnatural selection

Artificial intelligence and gene editing pioneers face new ethical and technological problems that humanity has never had to deal with. The four-part documentary they produced in response to this revelation was shot between 2016 and 2018. It takes viewers on a fast-paced journey from malaria-infected villages in Burkina Faso to fertility clinics in Ukraine. Through a variety of genetic engineering techniques, Unnatural Selection guides us while covering as many societal and environmental repercussions as time allows.
