Normal Is Over (103’ min) is a compelling and visually rich documentary directed by investigative TV-journalist Renée Scheltema. Her award-winning film is about humanity’s wisest response to climate change, species extinction, the depletion of critical natural resources, income inequality and industrial control of our food production.
This unique documentary examines how our economic and financial system connects all these issues, and offers solutions, which could be implemented immediately, from practical everyday fixes to rethinking the overarching myths of our time.
Renée takes off on a multinational voyage, meeting not only prominent experts, but also everyday citizens who concentrate on matters such as organic agriculture, the banning of plastic, saving species, ecological economics, sustainable architecture, renewable energy, and more.
While this film is intended to challenge viewers on many different levels, it most of all offers hope.
