The Age of Stupid USA Trailer from Age of Stupid on Vimeo.

Hey, humanity!! Do you hear me? Yes, you! Earth speaking. Will you please listen to me at least once? Will you start thinking about your environment finally? What? You don't have the time?! You are in a hurry and have to earn more money to support kids and family? You have to watch the latest soap opera drama in TV? You don't think the situation is that bad? You don't give the shit about the Gaia?! Are you stupid or wot?!?!?!?

Today, 21st of September 2009 is the date of global premiere screening of 'The Age of Stupid', the new cinema 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: why didn't we stop climate change while we had the chance? The movie touches upon climate change, oil, war, politics, consumerism and human stupidity (finally someone addressing the worst virust of this planet).

The movie will be played on hundreds of venues across the globe, check the exact times and dates on THE GLOBAL PREMIERE SITE

I'm really proud that this movie was shown practically for the first time officially in my country, Poland during the
UN Climate Conference in PoznaƄ held in the late 2008. This movie has been purchased by some unknown distributor (I have some suspects thou) in Poland who unfortunately failed to 'cash in' on this global event and failed to organize at leaste one screening on the global date. Are these people stupid or something? Thus, sadly no exact date for Poland :(

Check the Not Stupid Organization which accompanies the global screenings of this movie and become one of the activist fighting the global stupidity cancer.
