The age of Stupid

I spent a greater half of yesterday evening reading about a to-be-released film -The age of  Stupid from director Franny Armstrong (of Mclibel and Baked Alaska) and producer John Battsek.(One Day in September). A brief synopsis posted on the web summarises of an archivist played by Pete Postlethwaite (from In the name of the father fame) living a solitary life in the devastated world of 2055. In the movie, Pete looks at "old" footage from 2008 and asks: why didn’t we stop climate change when we had the chance?

This is definitely a docu-drama to look out for come April next year when the movie is slated for international release. Furthermore, the movie has been crowd-funded (note the similarity to crowd sourcing) - around 270 people have funded it and will receive proceeds from the movie sales. Time Magazine covers this aspect of the movie here
