Films that Matter: The Age of Stupid

16 August at 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

$8

The Age of Stupid stars Oscar-nominated Pete Postlethwaite (In The Name of the Father, The Usual Suspects, Brassed Off) as a man living in the devastated future world of 2055, looking back at old footage from our time and asking: why didn’t we stop climate change when we had the chance? It was released in 2009 and will be screened here along with a short film made this year by the Guardian which returns to many of the places and issues that the first film visited. We will follow this film with a discussion facilitated by Sophia White, a passionate sustainability advocate.

Films that matter: This winter grab a seat at the WEA for some screenings of great films that look at important issues. You can pick the films that interest you or opt for a film pass and come along to all three screenings. Please note that the fee is a donation to cover the costs and includes a seat at a post film discussion as well as hot chocolate, cookies and popcorn!
