Renée Scheltema’s "Normal Is Over" Screening In The Hamptons

Nicole Barylski

The Ecological Culture Initiative (ECI) is hosting a special screening of investigative TV- journalist Renée Scheltema's award winning documentary Normal Is Over on Tuesday, February 26.

"Having grown up in Hampton Bays in the 1970's, to now seeing dying trees, mass fish kills, and our sand dunes choked with plastic, I realized what we once considered normal living has changed," Jeff Schultz, Meteorologist and Ecological Culture Initiative Director of Public Relations, relayed. "ECI hopes Normal Is Over will serve as a call to recognize and address the environmental pressures put on our land and waterways."

Normal Is Over takes a look at how civilization has unintentionally harmed our planet through climate change, the disappearance of species, the overuse of vital natural resources, and industrial management of our food production. It explores the economic and financial connections, and also how to fix the situation we've put ourselves in.

The documentary features insight from several prominent experts, including Al Gore, Former Vice President; Professor Lester Brown, Agricultural Economist; Professor Michael Mann, Meteorologist; Professor Naomi Oreskes, History of Science; Dr. Vandana Shiva, Environmental activist; Charles Eisenstein, Author; Paul Gilding, Social Activist; and many more. It also offers commentary from everyday citizens that focus on subjects such as saving species from extinction, organic agriculture, prohibiting of plastic, renewable energy, and more.

"Smart, different and compelling ... An educational journey about money and the planet we should all go on," Andy Ridley, Co-Founder Earth Hour, and Managing Director, lauded, while Professor Michael Braungart, Co-founder Cradle-2-Cradle, said the film is "A catalyst for changing the world, and a must for every decision maker in this world."

The Normal Is Over screening will take place at the UA Hampton Bays 5 movie theater at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $16.20 and must be purchased in advance. The running time is 1 hour and 43 minutes and ECI will hold a post film question and answer session.

"We wish to spark a discussion about the positive, simple changes we can make which are less destructive, and more regenerative, to our environment. After the film screening, ECI will have Q&A to discuss solutions and plans of action," Schultz said.

UA Hampton Bays 5 is located at 119 West Montauk Highway in Hampton Bays. For tickets, or more information, visit eciny.org.
