The Great Pause: Normal *Was* The Crisis

4.8 ·

We are in the time of THE GREAT PAUSE.

In Part 1, we put a critical lens on the current failing system and showing why it doesn’t make sense to go back to the degenerative ‘abnormal normal’. Part 1 was co-produced by Evan Wiley and the teams at WorldSummit, HackHumanity and Envienta, which lays out this profound time of reflection that we find ourselves in and where we might collectively go next.

In Part 2, we zoom in on the possibilities of how we can solve our problems at the root cause level. The Covid-19 lockdown is a case-study that proves that we indeed can change society very quickly if we have a compelling reason to do so.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
