Great documentaries that changed my viewpoint

About to start teaching a Current Issues class to high school students. Need recommendations about quality documentaries that can supplement what we will cover in the class.

Each week, we'll cover different general topics and analyze how each area around the globe deals with the issue:
- Poverty, homelessness, etc.
- Water issues
- Population Growth
So, I'm looking for great documentaries that will help 'open the eyes' of the students as it relates to one of these topics.
We'll build each week around the documentary and the students will research more information on the topic and how it impacts it in various locations.
Some of my favorite documentaries are from PBS's Frontline. I have access to Netflix too.
Thanks so much for the help!
