After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music. Aldous Huxley

Adan Curtis is an English documentary film-maker who won 4 BAFTAs. His documentaries explore areas of sociology, psychology, philosophy and political history. Watch Hypernormalisation film on BBC iplayer.

We live in a time of great uncertainty and confusion. Events keep happening that seem inexplicable and out of control. Donald Trump, Brexit, the War in Syria, the endless migrant crisis, random bomb attacks. And those who are supposed to be in power are paralysed - they have no idea what to do.

This film is the epic story of how we got to this strange place. It explains not only why these chaotic events are happening - but also why we, and our politicians, cannot understand them.

It shows that what has happened is that all of us in the West - not just the politicians and the journalists and the experts, but we ourselves - have retreated into a simplified, and often completely fake version of the world. But because it is all around us we accept it as normal.
