The Age of Stupid

2009-09-18 10:16
The critically acclaimed documentary The Age of Stupid about global warming and climate change will be screened at The Labia Cinema on Orange Street on Monday 21 September at 8.30 pm and on Tuesday 22 September at 6.15 pm.

The Age of Stupid is the new documentary from the director of 'McLibel' and the producer of the Oscar-winning 'One Day in September'. 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 himself: "Why didn't we stop climate change while we had the chance?"

The soundtrack features music by Radiohead and Depeche Mode.

The screenings are part of a global premiere which will take place on the same days in over 40 countries around the globe.

More information about the film can be found on the official website:

The screenings will be followed by a facilitated audience discussion. Tickets cost R20 and can be reserved by calling The Labia at (021) 424 5927. Reserving tickets is strongly recommended to avoid disappointment.

This event is presented by The Labia and While You Were Sleeping, a Cape Town-based non-profit film collective committed to bringing progressive, non-mainstream documentaries with important social and environmental messages to South African audiences.

* We have FIVE double tickets to give away to the Cape Town screening at the Labia on either 21 or 22 September.
To enter, simply e-mail your details to Andreas Späth of While You Were Sleeping at
