    The third sentence is possible. They were made in the past so that we can understand now.

    "Documentary films ARE made so that we CAN understand and appreciate our reality even more."

    When you are talking about something in general, the simple present tense is more appropriate.

    'Our reality' could be replaced with a better word.
