The Age of Stupid is the first film to dramatize the effects of climate change. A combination of drama and documentary, the film stars Pete Postlethwaite as an old man in 2055, browsing through archive footage and wondering why we didn’t act to save ourselves. The Grierson Award Jury declared it “a powerful and unforgettable film”, while the Ecologist says “Fantastic. Knocks spots off An Inconvenient Truth”.
The film will premiere in Leicester Square on March 15th, from a solar-powered tent in Leicester Square, and it will be transmitted live to 60 other cinemas around the country, making it the largest ever premiere. The more people get along to see the film on its opening night, the more cinemas will consider showing it, so try and get to a showing if you can!
