The wonderfully important Age Of Stupid starring the impressive Pete Postlewaite has a cacophonous majesty of ideas boiling in the same pot. Radical, thought provoking and in tune with climate change unrest, the film has it all.
Independently distributed due to ownership/rights for the film from those who contributed to maintain full rights so the film can be shown for film festivals/events to get climate change heard. The feature knocks spots off that Al Gore malarkey due to being more honest and human.
This climate change film is an actual film with a background story. Unique in its delivery, you cannot avoid its message with sincerity.
The well documented areas include: Oil, Wind Farms, An Indian Airline connoisseur, Nigerian oil business, hurricane Katrina, consumerism and social change amongst other issues. There are some similar ideas in documentary Black Gold where the coffee trade in Africa is seen in its’ rawest form.
Age Of Stupid will hopefully be distributed globally for more awareness, instead of being a flash in the pan issue. Either way the film is such a terrific achievement for not only director Armstrong, but for the entire crew to make it happen.
