The Global Premier of The Age of Stupid will launch in America on September 21st 2009 from a solar-powered cinema tent in New York LIVE to over 400 movie theatres across the country. The timings are: 7:30 PM ET/ 6:30 PM CT / 5:30 PM MT / tape delayed 8PM PT. The film is a mix of drama, documentary, and animation skillfully blended together to attention to the changing climate and the consequences of inaction. Filmed on location in America, UK, India, Nigeria, Iraq, Jordan, and The Alps, the movie intermingles real people all over the globe who communicate what they see and hear each day and how decisions made in one hemisphere are changing life in another. The changes are not always for the better.
“The Age of Stupid” will be showing in select theaters around the United States will feature a live panel discussion about the movie. The participants will include former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, actress Gillian Anderson, and climate experts speaking from the Arctic, the Himalayas, the Rain Forest, and other locations around the globe.
Listen folks, the portrayal of the world of 2055 shown in this film is based on science, it is NOT science fiction. The science consultants used the rather optimistic view we had of climate change back in 2007. Since then, we have found that the climate effects and associated impacts that this movie renders so clearly are in fact closer to how things will be if we don’t take action. Climate change is going faster than we thought it would. Things are going to get worse.
If you want to avoid all the dry statistics and number crunching, if you’d like to understand what the current CO2 level implies to the daily life of your children and grandchildren, GO SEE THIS MOVIE!
