The Age of Stupid

The Age of Stupid is a new docu-drama set in the future (2055) after climate change has done great damage to humanity. The main character (Pete Postlethwaite) is a historian who looks back at footage from 2008 and wonders why we didn’t stop climate change while we still had a chance.

The film is premiering world-wide on Monday (Sept 21), for one night only, with the hopes of breaking the Guinness World Record for the biggest simultaneous film screening.

After the film, a live feed from a premier in New York will feature a performance from Thom Yorke (Radiohead) and comments from Kofi Annan (Nobel Peace Prize) and James Hansen (environmental scientist).

You can buy tickets for the Salt Lake screening here. It plays at Century 16 Theater at 5:30pm.

I’ve already got tickets, so see you there!

Below is a trailer and a short news clip.
