THE AGE OF STUPID (12A) is a hard-hitting climate change film documentary, directed by Franny Armstrong (McLibel, Drowned Out) and produced by Oscar-winning producer John Battsek (One Day in September, In the Shadow of the Moon).

Pete Postlethwaite stars as the narrator, an old man living alone in what is a devastated world of 2055, looking at "archive footage" from 2008 and asking "why didn't we stop climate change when we had the chance?".

Pete's character is the founder of the Global Archive, a storage facility located in the (now melted) Arctic, dedicated to preserving all of humanity's achievements in the hope that the planet might one day be habitable again.

The stories Pete's character uses to illustrate the plight of planet earth when something could have been done, include those of six individuals across the globe, whose lives have been affected in some way by climate change.
