BCSEA hosts invitation-only screening of "The Age of Stupid"

The BC Sustainable Energy Association is hosting a sneak preview of The Age of Stupid on September 21 as part of a night of “Global Premieres” screening in hundreds of theatres and dozens of countries around the world.

The Age of Stupid is an ambitious drama-documentary-animation hybrid from "McLibel" director Franny Armstrong. It stars Oscar-nominated Pete Postlethwaite as a man living alone in the devastated world of 2055 asking the question "Why didn't we stop climate change when we had the chance?"

Like you, the BCSEA believes we do still have a chance to change our present course towards climate calamity. Our work puts forward a positive and practical vision for our communities, our planet, and our future.

This free, “invitation-only” event takes place this Monday night at the Cineplex Odeon Cinema at 780 Yates Street in downtown Victoria, B.C.’s provincial capital.

Invitations have been sent to local BCSEA members, First Nations community leaders, prominent business people, all 85 Members of the Provincial Legislature, local MPs, Capital Regional District municipal councillors, many government agency staff, and dozens of other key contacts.

The Victoria screening of The Age of Stupid, and the hundreds of premieres occurring simultaneously around the world on September 21st and 22nd, coincides with the meeting in Pittsburgh of G-20 leaders preparing for the U.N. Summit on Climate Change in Copenhagen.

If you have not received an invitation, you may contact us for one. Email events@bcsea.org or call 250-744-2720.
