The Age of Stupid, from director Franny Armstrong (McLibel), and Kiwi Producer Lizzie Gillett, stars Pete Postlethwaite as a man living alone in the devastated world of 2055, looking back at news footage and asking: why didn’t we stop climate change when we had the chance?
“Bold, supremely provocative and hugely important… a cry from the heart as much as a roar for necessary change” – THE TELEGRAPH (UK)
“Think ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ but with a personality” – LA TIMES
It’s a must see.
Following the extraordinary success of the UK People’s Premiere, The Age of Stupid will be launched simultaneously in Australia and New Zealand at the biggest – and greenest – live film event the two countries have ever seen.
On Weds 19th August, celebrities will arrive at both the Sydney Theatre and at a specially-constructed solar powered tent in downtown Auckland. The Auckland event is being hosted by Oxfam and Greenpeace. The celebrities, who’ll include Sign On ambassadors Lucy Lawless and Keisha Castle-Hughes, will brave the cameras on the green carpet before being welcomed by MC Oliver Driver.
Following the screening of the film, there’ll be a live link up with the Sydney event, before a Q and A with producer Lizzie Gillett, chaired by broadcaster Noelle McCarthy.
Meanwhile, across town, the film will open in all Hoyts cinemas. So there’s no excuse for missing it! See below for screening times.
