I - THE UNCERTAINTY HAS SETTLED
After eight years of travelling through conflict and poverty zones, Marijn Poels - a progressive filmmaker/journalist - decides to take some time off. In the Austrian mountains no less.
It confronts him unexpectedly with the roots of agriculture and its modern day perspective. Globalisation and climate politics are causing radical changes such as farmers becoming energy suppliers.
But the green ideology raises questions. The scientific topic of climate change has now become incontrovertibly a matter of world politics.
Poels faces a personal conflict. Are we doing the right thing?
II - PARADOGMA
Why True Liberty Needs Heretics.
People who dare to question important themes today, are often silenced or labeled as suspicious and dangerous. Where once democracies valued and encouraged debate society is dividing itself with stark lines between the left, the right, the good or the bad. This is what Dutch documentary maker Marijn Poels experiencing in PARADOGMA.
What is strangling debate? How liberal is the West? Should we ignore or embrace other perspectives? A critical, thought-provoking journey through ancient tribal conflicts, in a new era wherein world views clash and free speech crumbles under pressure to conform.
III - RETURN TO EDEN
When Natural and human interests impinge with each other and over-regulation displace our biological balance, important questions arise. Do we belong to nature or does nature belongs to us?
A thought-provoking story where documentary maker Marijn Poels explores the human urge to control our climate, security, and preferably the other balancing the razor-thin line between regulation and manipulation.
When technology reigns supreme and common sense vaporize through the test of time, humanity is on the brink to become the tool.
Miles away from the collective panic, fear and chaos there is hope, inspiration and reconnection.
