FILMS THAT MATTER: THE AGE OF STUPID + THE AGE OF STUPID REVISITED

Description

The Age of Stupid stars Oscar-nominated Pete Postlethwaite (In The Name of the Father, The Usual Suspects, Brassed Off) as a man living in the devastated future world of 2055, looking back at old footage from our time and asking: why didn't we stop climate change when we had the chance? It was released in 2009 and will be screened here along with a short film made this year by the Guardian which returns to many of the places and issues that the first film visited. We will follow this film with a discussion facilitated by Sophia White, a passionate sustainability advocate.
