THE AGE OF STUPID - Special! One showing only
A compelling independent film from the UK (2008) that interweaves six stories of people from all over the world whose lives have been affected by climate change with a fictional 2055 scenario starring acclaimed British actor, Pete Postlethwaite, who asks, "Why didn't we save ourselves when we had the chance?"
The movie, which clearly shows the complexities of the issue of climate change, will be followed by a brief forum introducing the work of Transition Albany to create local solutions.
Tickets ($8/5 students) on sale in advance from Albany Twin box office and at the door.
