The Bizz

Join Pomp & Circumstance on Monday, September 21st by participating in a global movie premiere.

The Age of Stupid, a four-year epic from director Franny Armstrong will be broadcast live from New York City on Monday, September 21 to more than 700 locations in over 50 countries simultaneously, uniting nearly one million people for climate change.

Oscar®-nominated Pete Postlethwaite (“In the Name of the Father,” “Usual Suspects”) plays a global archivist living in 2055 who takes audiences back through news clips and personal docu-stories from 2004 – 2008 wondering why we didn’t heed the warnings of climate change when we had a chance. Are we The Age of Stupid?

Check for a screening near you by logging online.

The event will kick off with a green carpet bicycle-powered performance by Moby and will culminate with an acoustic act from Radiohead’s, Thom Yorke. A-list celebrities will arrive by bike, rickshaw, electric car and sailing boat, before braving the paparazzi on the green carpet (made from recycled soda bottles).

Following the screening in a solar powered cinema tent, in dowtown New York, there will be a 40 minute event featuring: Kofi Annan, Gillian Anderson, Mary Robinson, the film's director Franny Armstrong, the star of the film Pete Postlethwaite and other leading thinkers, celebrities and political figures from around the world.

If you can’t join us via satellite, stay tuned for coverage on The Bizz.
