The Age of Stupid is a 90-minute film about contemporary climate change, set in a future trying to understand how we let the situation deteriorate when we had so much information in front of us. Produced by creators of McLibel, and starring Oscar-nominated Pete Postlethwaite (In The Name of the Father, Brassed Off) as a man living alone in the devasted world of 2055, looking back at “archive” footage from 2007 and asking: why didn’t we stop climate change when we had the chance?
The Age of Stupid had its world premiere in London on March 15th 2009 and was released in UK cinemas on March 20th 2009, and around the world in September.
