FACT rolls out the green carpet for The Age of Stupid
26 February 2009
Coinciding with the very first week of FACT's new people-powered exhibition, Climate for Change, this enormously ambitious drama-documentary-animation hybrid stars Oscar-nominated Pete Postlethwaite as an old man living in the devastated world of 2055, watching archive footage from 2008 and asking: why didn't we stop climate change while we had the chance?
Age of Stupid will receive simultaneous premieres at 60 cinemas across the UK, with a solar-powered cinema tent pitched in London's Leicester Square. But the best part is the premiere is completely INclusive. You don't need to be a VIP to get a ticket, all you need to do is buy one!
What's more, the film was totally funded by crowd-funding (£450,000 raised by selling shares to individuals and groups), and there are still opportunities to donate to this worthy cause.
