Climate Camp Documentary + 'Age of Stupid' Film Screening

category limerick | environment | event notice author Friday October 23, 2009 10:49author by Liamoauthor email limerick at climatecamp dot ie Report this post to the editors

UL (University of Limerick) 7:30pm

The Age of Stupid (2009) is a film by Franny Armstrong, director of McLibel and founder of 10:10, and first-time producer Lizzie Gillett. The Executive Producer is John Battsek, producer of One Day in September.

The film is a drama-documentary-animation hybrid which stars Pete Postlethwaite as a man living alone in the devastated world of 2055, watching archive footage from 2008 and asking "Why didn't we stop climate change when we had the chance?", referring to the current global warming.

SOME REVIEWS:

The Guardian (UK) : "The first successful dramatisation of climate change to reach the big screen."

Nature : "[The film] largely avoids talking heads, lengthy BBC-accented voiceovers, and other stifling staples of many documentaries. The pace is taut and the portraits intimate and playful, with an eye for gem-like moments of absurdity."

The Sun (UK) : "Predictions from exctinction movie already happening in real life."

The Ecologist magazine : “Fantastic. Knocks spots off An Inconvenient Truth”

New Statesman : “Anything but a good-guys-versus-bad-guys polemic. It is angry but nuanced, despairing but strangely motivating.”
