HyperNormalisation is a 2016 BBCdocumentary by British filmmaker Adam Curtis. The film was released on 16 October 2016 on the BBC iPlayer. In the film, Curtis argues that since the 1970s, governments, financiers, and technological utopians have given up on the complex "real world" and built a simple "fake world" that is run by corporations and kept stable by politicians.
I thought I would put this up here to see what people though of it, it is quite long almost 3 hours but I found it quite interesting and I was quite elated after watching it as it confirmed a lot of what I think of the modern world, My OH on the other hand found it quite depressing! It is in 9 chapters so can be watched in chunks, I think it does gloss over a lot of details, Gaddafi in particular but still a very interesting take on our political system and how it is controlled.

Seeing that Trump is dominating the media nowadays I thought it apt.
