The Phantom of Normality

By Saara Turunen

“I have only one hope in this life. And that is that I would get to be a normal person.”

What does it mean to be normal? Why are we so afraid to stand out from the crowd?

Inspired by Luis Brunel’s film The Phantom of Liberty, The Phantom of Normality is a melodic collage of images gently revealing the absurdity of everyday life in the 21st century. It’s a sharp expose of the weirdness of our habits and traditions and a tribute to the melancholy beauty of our short lives.

The Phantom of Normality is directed by Melissa Dunne. Cast includes Olivia Darnley, Joe Eyre, Jennifer Jackson, Tessie Orange-Turner and Simon Rhodes.
