“Smart, different and compelling…
An educational journey about money and the planet we should all go on
What’s different about this movie is the time and effort that is put into understanding the money flows – it’s an essential education.”

There was nothing normal about it… Each one was deeply touched, and you could see how they searched their hearts before coming to their feet and applauding as if for an extraordinary symphony.

There are many films out there, this one stands above the others for its systems-thinking and solutions approach.” Elizabeth Ferguson Phd & Jeremy Lent

“I saw Normal is Over at the Wild & Scenic Film Festival. I asked the question about showing on BBC, PBS, etc. and whether one could donate on your Website. Your film was my vote for Audience Favorite.
I’ve attended ..many.. film festivals, and I can’t think of a film that has impressed me as much as yours did, nor received a standing ovation. Not just the film itself, but the whole story behind its making and bringing it to the screen. You have my heartfelt thanks and admiration. I hope you’re able to get for it the wide distribution that it deserves.”
