Save the Date: Great Film April 1

Sustainable Kodiak and Kodiak College Community Engagement Committee Present:

Friday, April 1, 6:30 pm, room 130 The Age of Stupid

Bullfrog Films has just released a new documentary film, The Age of Stupid by Franny Armstrong.

The film is a drama-documentary-animation hybrid which stars Pete Postlethwaite as a man living alone in the devastated world of 2055, watching archive footage from the mid-to-late 2000s and asking "Why didn't we stop climate change when we had the chance?"
Amid news reports of the gathering effects of climate change and global civilization teetering towards destruction, he alights on six stories of individuals whose lives in the early years of the 21st century seem to illustrate aspects of the impending catastrophe. These six stories take the form of interweaving documentary segments that report on the lives of real people in the present, and switch the film's narrative form from fiction to fact.
Details, awards and a trailer can be found on Bullfrog Film's website here
