The Age of Stupid
Probably the biggest ever global film event
Set in the year 2055, The Age of Stupid focuses on a man living alone in a world which has all been destroyed by climate change.
In an attempt to understand exactly how such a tragedy could have befallen his species and the society and culture which they created over the course of several millennia, he begins to review a series of ‘archive’ documentary clips from 2008.
His aim is to discover how his ancestors – the one generation of people who had the power to prevent the impending disaster – could have demonstrated such disregard or contempt for the future.
