Renewed Premiere Thursday.

Adam Curtis strikes again with ‘HyperNormalisation’. This time, he challenges our preconceived idea of the ‘real’ as he brings out examples of the ‘fake world’ we live in: everything is constructed by elites, politicians and influential magnates that shape the world according to their needs.

The BBC documentary digs into the channel’s archives to present footage of decades disasters and mismanagement. The documentary is sectioned into nine parts which show the evolution of society and institutions since the 70’s. Clearly, this lengthy projection is a wake up call for us who mainly remain passive in such instances.

Although the documentary presents politics as having defeated society, and gives a sense of a powerless community, we become aware through such footage. Our current status may be altered.
