Film: “The Age of Stupid” One Night Only

On Monday, September 21, people in the Ann Arbor area have a special opportunity to watch the one-night-only premiere of an important new film called The Age of Stupid.

The film is a powerful “docudrama” set in the year 2055, after global warming has done massive damage to humanity. Oscar-nominated actor Pete Postlethwaite stars as a historian who “looks back” on real footage from 2008 to try to answer the question, “why didn’t we stop climate change while we had the chance?”

In addition to the movie, the theater will simulcast a Hollywood-style premiere event from New York City.

You’ll get so much more than just a great movie. The premiere event, simulcast live from a solar-powered tent in New York City to over 700 theaters in the U.S. and 50 other countries, will feature such celebrities as Gillian Anderson, Heather Graham, and Moby.

Also, MTV’s Gideon Yago will interview Nobel Peace Prize recipient Kofi Annan, environmental scientist James Hansen, and The Age of Stupid director Franny Armstrong. Ending the night will be a special, acoustic performance by Radiohead’s Thom Yorke.

The Age of Stupid was number one at the box office in the U.K. this spring, and this one-night event is poised to break the Guinness World Record for biggest simultaneous film screening.
