New Westminster Environmental Partners will present the only encore screening of the critically acclaimed film The Age of Stupid following its premiere at the Vancouver International Film Festival. The screening follows a ‘Green Carpet’ event that NWEP promises will be attended by politicians, environmentalists and movie stars (oh, do name names, NWEP …).
The film is a “drama-documentary-animation hybrid” starring 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?
The screening will take place at Douglas College’s New Westminster Campus (700 Royal Ave), room 1614 on Thursday October 22nd at 7:30pm. Tickets are $5 in advance or $6 at the door and can be purchased through the NWEP website at www.nwep.ca. Pre-purchase is encouraged as seating is limited.
