Ordinary Madness (2013)

 

The relation between humans and nature has been changing enormously during the past two decades. New modern models of administration of the relationship between human beings, and between them and nature have arisen; such as massive industrialization, colonial conquests and consumption models, which resulted in new wars, commodification of the world and global warming. Changes that caused what we can call World Madness. “Ordinary Madness” portrays these changes in the Palestinian context, giving an overview of the Palestinian life under modernity rule and asks the audience to reflect on it.
