CLIMATE CHANGE AT THE MOVIES

The irony of screening this movie at Governor's Square mega thratre will not be lost on Green Readers:

The UK-produced The Age of Stupid is showing one night only, September 21 at 7:30 PM. Filmmaker Franny Armstrong has put together a collection of forecasts of irreversible doom resulting from our failure to act on climate change.

The movie is set in the year 2055 and global warming melted down both the ecology and the economy of Earth in 2015. An archivist in the rim of the Arctic Circle re-examines the data that led to the demise of the world through a touch-screen time machine. One reviewer called it 'Planet Earth's Unfunniest Home Videos.'

Armstrong, who says her film is "about humans not about climate change," spent over four years roaming the globe to gather the footage.
