Two short documentaries about two different ongoing large-scale tragedies are now available to stream free from YouTube. Both are produced by National Geographic Documentary Films.

Lost and Found, directed by Orlando von Einsiedel, shows how the Myanmar military’s brutal campaign of ethnic cleansing and violence has driven more than 700,000 Rohingya from their homes. The film provides the personal perspective of Kamal Hussein, a Rohingya refugee who has committed himself to reuniting children with their parents.

The “verité-style exposé” Nightcrawlers, directed by first-time director Alexander A. Mora, tags along with Raffy Lerma and other brave freelance photojournalists (“Nightcrawlers”) as they chronicle the Philippines’ deadly war on drugs. It’s estimated that some 27,000 people have been murdered via extrajudicial killings. The documentary includes interviews with members of death squads who prowl the city and serve as judge, jury and executioner – with impunity.
