HyperNormalisation 2016 BBC documentary by Adam Curtis

HyperNormalisation is a 2016 BBC documentary by British filmmaker Adam Curtis. The film was released on 16 October 2016
wades through the culmination of forces that have driven this culture
into mass uncertainty, confusion, spectacle and simulation. Where events
keep happening that seem crazy, inexplicable and out of control—from
Donald Trump to Brexit, to the War in Syria, mass immigration, extreme
disparity in wealth, and increasing bomb attacks in the West—this film
shows a basis to not only why these chaotic events are happening, but
also why we, as well as those in power, may not understand them. We have
retreated into a simplified, and often completely fake version of the
world. And because it is reflected all around us, ubiquitous, we accept
it as normal. This epic narrative of how we got here spans over 40
years, with an extraordinary cast of characters—the Assad dynasty,
Donald Trump, Henry Kissinger, Patti Smith, early performance artists in
New York, President Putin, Japanese gangsters, suicide bombers, Colonel
Gaddafi and the Internet. HyperNormalisation weaves these historical
narratives back together to show how today’s fake and hollow world was
created and is sustained. This shows that a new kind of resistance must
be imagined and actioned, as well as an unprecedented reawakening in a
time where it matters like never before.
