Global Premiere: The Age of Stupid in Cape Town

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.

If you care about the future of the planet, you can’t afford to miss this one!

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 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.
