Greendoc: Normal is Over

Greendoc: Normal is Over

After the huge success of the screening of Normal Is Over, we’ve decided to organise a third screening because there’s still so much interest and we feel everyone has to see this documentary.

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 imperilled 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.

Filmmaker Renée Scheltema 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.

Normal is Over was screened in a packed Tuschinski in 2016. After a brief world tour, filmmaker Renée Scheltema is back in Amsterdam and will be present for a short Q&A about the film. 

The screening is free. Feel free to give a generous donation to the independent filmmaker Renée Scheltema who produced this film on her own. Check the trailer here:
