The Age of Stupid
A Reel Progress Screening
April 29, 2009, 7:00pm ��� 9:00pm
About This Event
"The Age Of Stupid" is the new cinema documentary from the Director of "McLibel" and the Producer of the Oscar-winning "One Day In September." This enormously ambitious dramadocumentary- animation hybrid stars Oscar-nominated Pete Postlethwaite as an old man living in the devastated world of 2055, watching "archive" footage from 2008 and asking: why didn't we stop climate change while we had the chance?
Runaway climate change has ravaged the planet by 2055. Pete Postlethwaite plays the founder of The Global Archive, a storage facility located in the (now melted) Arctic, preserving all of humanity's achievements in the hope that the planet might one day be habitable again. Or that intelligent life may arrive and make use of all that we've achieved. He pulls together clips of "archive" news and documentary from[masked] to build a message showing what went wrong and why.
Please join the Center for American Progress and the Center for Global Ethics at George Mason University for a provocative discussion immediately following the film, including announcements about the film's ambitious release plans.
