5 x 5 Docuseries (25 mins). How the World Went Mad explores the rise of political insanity through the sociology of madness. Using animation and archival footage, these humorous films unpack complex ideas by using an original mix of satire and science. Each episode tackles a different aspect of the madness epidemic by asking a fundamental question about our flight from sanity. Has the world gone mad? Is reality television to blame? Why are crazy conspiracy theories on the rise? How do you cure a society gone mad? And what is madness anyway? Produced by the documentary streaming platform Docsville, they are due for release in early 2018.
