Please join us for the second film in the Rural Cinema Series: Heroes of Our Time on November 24th.
The third film in the 5-part film series is The Age of Stupid. We are excited to partner with Working Films and the Paradise Theatre to bring you this critically important film.
The Age of Stupid is the story of a man living in the devastated future world of 2055, looking back at old footage from our time and asking: why didn’t we stop climate change when we had the chance? The film follows seven real people’s climate impact stories: an Indian entrepreneur struggling to start a new low-cost airline, a Shell employee in New Orleans who rescued more than 100 people during Hurricane Katrina, an 82-year-old French mountain guide watching his beloved glaciers melt, two Iraqi refugee children searching for their elder brother, a young woman living in desperate poverty in Nigeria’s richest oil area, and a windfarm developer in Britain battling the NIMBYs who don’t want his turbines to spoil their view.
This event is made possible by a grant from Working Films to bring educational films around environmental justice/injustice to rural communities. This is the third film in a curated film series that will take place in September, November, December 2020 and January 2021. Each film will build upon the other in a series that explores drivers behind environmental injustice (in our case oil and gas development in sensitive areas), the political and economic resistance to action, and the solutions and heroes of our time (not who you might expect).
Suggested donation: $10.
