Age of Stupid

We found time(in between packing boxes,preparing to move)to see The Age of Stupid. This film is currently screening at the Balmoral in Oxford St Bulimba. The Age of Stupid is the new four-year epic from McLibel director Franny Armstrong. Oscar-nominated Pete Postlethwaite stars as a man living alone in the devastated world of 2055, looking at old footage from 2008 and asking - why didn’t we stop climate change when we had the chance?

Get together all your networks, families and friends, as this is a critical call to action. I have to say, I found this more compelling than

Inconvenient Truth, which was compelling enough, albeit in a different way. I know I can not look my granddaughter in the eye and say it was too hard to take action!

  1. Went and saw the movie today, I agree Carol it's very compelling and would recommend any TTKD members who havn't seen it to go along. Bonus points for Cineplex being super cheap as far as movie theaters go.
    The movie reminded me that despite the numerous obstacles we face in addressing climate change it is worth the effort because the alternative...... well there really is no alternative.
