3 shows to watch on Netflix This weekend that will challenge your percepetions

Netflix productions are entertaining, engaging and some reveal some ugly truths most societies would rather sweep under the rug.

Here are three shows that are worth watching if you are interested in different cultures:

1.Indian Matchmaking

The practice of matchmaking is an age-old tradition in India. Using an expert love matchmaker Sima Tapari, many individuals find a suitor who meets their family’s and individual’s needs. On the show, the individuals draw out a list, a rundown of the characteristics or ‘criteria’ that their suitor should meet.

The show inadvertently brings out the caste system, and colorism within the Indian community and its effects on marriage. If you are interested in an inside look at arranged marriage in the Indian community this might be interesting. BBC reported, in India, it’s estimated that 90% of all marriages are still arranged, where the onus of finding a ‘suitable’ match for a person is on the family elders. Indian Matchmaking just takes this concept further.

2. My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman

The second season of ‘My Next Guest Needs No Introduction’ is here with an impressive roaster of guests including Kim Kardashian West and Dave Chapelle. The conversational interview sees long-time late-night talk show host interview guests, revealing a human side of some of Hollywood’s most popular figures. More importantly, with this new season, Letterman delves deeper into more important issues including prison reform, civic responsibility, and rising racial tensions in America.

3.City of Joy

The Netflix production reveals the magnitude of Congo war, its after-effects on individuals, and a community of women willing to fight for another day after being victims of rape in Eastern Congo. The movie is a story of survival, of new life, and the revival of Congo’s resilient women. It is quoted as “a heart-wrenching yet beautiful testimony of how Congolese women are starting their own grassroots movement to create a safe haven and rise up.”

There are more productions that offer social commentary, and highlight great stories that will not only educate but also inspire.
