People are binning their belongings after watching this Netflix doco

How many of your belongings could you live without? A provocative new Netflix documentary is challenging people across the globe to de-clutter, disconnect and embrace a lifestyle of living with less.

Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things is exactly as the name suggests - a feature focused on the beauty of simplicity.

“We’re living our life depending on the space we’ve got rather than creating our space to fit our lives,” says Joshua Millburn, who works alongside Ryan Nicodemus in the film to take viewers on a journey of minimalism. The pair have previously given TED talks on the subject of minimalism.

To explore minimalism's many flavours, the documentary also enters the lives of wall street brokers, journalists, scientists, families and people from all walks of life who have made the decision to scrap the superfluous. 

Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things has quickly accrued praise as a powerful and timely challenge to consumer culture, inspiring hundreds around the globe. Could you be the next to par down you possessions?
