NORMAL IS OVER 1.1. (UK PREMIERE)

110 minutes

  • Director: Renee Scheltema

  • South Africa (2019) 

SYNOPSIS

A compelling and visually rich film directed by award-winning investigative TV-journalist Renée Scheltema. The film analyzes the big picture of why humans have inadvertently imperiled our planet: climate change, species extinction, the depletion of critical natural resources, and industrial control of our food production. 


The 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. The film takes off on an international 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.
