My question is...

Where can one located Documentary films? 

Thanks in advance

How did you view those films on your Fire Stick? The same provider is very likely available on Roku as well. For example, if you found them under Amazon Prime Video, then you can still access the same content with the Prime Video channel on a Roku.

I have watched some interesting films on a Roku channel called DOCUMENTARY+ (the screen icon calls it DOC+). Just search the channel store for 'doc' or 'documentary' and you will find this channel and several others with 'documentary' in the channel name. I haven't watched any of those others.
