The Age of Stupid

The Age of Stupid is a new eco-doco premiering next week in the UK, to be released on DVD in June. There’s a fictional element in that Pete Postlethwaite plays the part of an archivist looking back on why this current generation did so little to stop ecological disaster. The rest of the content is strictly non-fiction. Another interesting aspect of the movie is that it was financed using crowdfunding.

For more information on this, and other aspects of the documentary, there is 51 minute video called The Making of the Age of Stupid at The Guardian environment page which is well worth viewing.
