I first learned about permaculture by stumbling across the documentary about Bill Mollison called In Grave Danger of Falling Food. It totally expanded my worldview.
In my opinion, Greening the Desert is one of the most inspiring videos on the entire internet. Afforestation is now one of my biggest passions, and proof that it can be done in one of the world's harshest deserts jazzes me.

Pretty much anything of Geoff Lawton's is amazing to me, even if it has nothing to do with the region I live in.

Seeds of Permaculture is a good documentary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cr10nOm0xU . As is Permaculture: a quiet revolution https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITIB4N7W7f4 . Inhabit is a decent one too. http://inhabitfilm.com/

Something I think worth mentioning is there isn't a lot of what I would call a proper documentaries about permaculture. While there are some yes, most of the permaculture stuff seems to be more talks and presentations, or youtube videos of what people are doing. Rather than full on documentaries. Likey due to permaculture being such a large inclusive umbrella of a lot of techniques. It is hard to do a documentary including everything, so a lot of videos dedicated to parts and pieces are out there.

In that light I really like Ben Falk's videos. And pretty much anything from Permaculture voices. I also really enjoyed Mike Oeler's 3 dvd set on underground/earth sheltered homes. And of course the RMH DVD set was amazing.

Not really a documentary, but so inspiring. Formidable vegetable sound system music and music videos. For instance:

Abundant Land by Natasha Florentino is a great example of permaculture on Molokaʻi, Hawaiʻi: "A documentary film about a Hawaiian community’s efforts to repair the ecological trauma caused by industrial agriculture." -Kickstarter
