The Age of Stupid live film event, which aims to turn 250 millions viewers into climate activists, will take place at Plymouth Vue, Exeter Picturehouse and the Eden Project – as well as more than 60 participating cinemas and screenings throughout the UK on March 15.
The founder of the Transition Town movement, Rob Hopkins, will introduce the Eden Project Premiere. And the evening of green carpet events, after-screening Q&As and the official launch of the Not Stupid campaign (marking the count down to the Copenhagen Climate Summit in December), will be broadcast to each venue by satellite. And you can tune in on the web (March 15, 7.30pm, UK time).
Richard Good, Eden’s Pollination team leader, said: “The film takes you on a rollercoaster journey around the world revealing the interdependent nature of our global community and showing how each of us together is making an impact on our future.”
The Age of Stupid was directed by Franny Armstrong, and money for the film was raised through ‘crowd-funding’ -228 people put in between £500 and £35,000 to get the film made.
In the film Pete Postlethwaite stars as a man living alone in the devastated future world of 2055, looking at old footage from 2008 and asking: why didn’t we stop climate change when we had the chance?
â€¢ The Age of Stupid is on general release from March 20
