The rarity in finding a film that slaps you awake is one of the joys we get to experience at this festival. A film that shows the power in observation and visuals, that breaks the confines and traps of the normal documentary. NORMAL is the one film that understands words do not say everything and the meaning of queer can be found in the most ordinarily obscene places.

NORMAL is an unsettling visual journey through gender norms in contemporary society. Immersed in a kaleidoscopic mosaic of visually powerful scenes, viewers experience the ritualised performance of femininity and masculinity hidden in ordinary interactions, from birth to adulthood. Isolating the slightly grotesque, uncanny elements surrounding our everyday life, NORMAL meditates on what remains imperceptible about it – its governing norms, its inner mechanisms. The result is that what counts as ‘normal’ does not feel so reassuring anymore.
