How The World Went Mad
Investigate • 5m 42s
The five-part animated series 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?
