Join us for a screening of the award-winning documentary Normal is Over followed by a Q & A with the filmmaker Renée Scheltema. This compelling film offers various solutions to reversing the path of global decline that is imperiling our planet – giving hope and direction. A must-see for all of us!
Normal Is Over (103′ min) is a compelling and visually rich film directed by award winning, and investigative TV-journalist Renée Scheltema. Her film chronicles the way humans have inadvertently imperiled our planet: species extinction, climate change, the depletion of critical natural resources, 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.
With an open mind, Renée investigates the cause and symptoms of our crisis while offering hope. She 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. The film mixes accurate, relevant content with humor, and suggests ways how we can take positive practical action and change our lifestyles for future generations.
