Here’s the trailer via visionOntv:
Won Best Documentary awards in 3 film festivals
Genre: Documentary. Director: Franny Armstrong. UK, 2009. 92 Minutes.
Blurring the boundary between sci-fi and documentary, Franny Armstrong’s The Age of Stupid peers back in time from a climate crisis-wracked 2055 to lament our current inaction on the mother of all conflicts: The war on terra. In this new ambitious documentary/drama/animation hybrid Pete Postlethwaite stars as an archivist in the devastated world of the future, asking the question: “Why didn’t we stop climate change when we still had the chance?” He looks back on footage of real people around the world in the years leading up to 2015 before runaway climate change took place.
