A good turn out for the Global Premiere, 22nd September, 2009, many climate conscious young people there. Plans for more Indie Screenings throughout the year.
On 22 September 2009 there was the Green Carpet Premiere of the hard-hitting ‘drama-documentary-animation’ on climate change "The Age of Stupid" at PVR Premiere [Select Citywalk, Saket, New Delhi, India] organised by Greenpace and tcktcktck[a global alliance of civil society calling for binding climate change agreements] supported by the PVR CSR wing. Oscar nominated director Shekhar Kapur and some other dignitaries were also present.
Film maker Shekhar Kapur spoke for about 7 minutes. He regretted that our glaciers were fast receding and that should be a supreme concern to the 1.3 billion people who depend on them for water.
Report from Greenpeace India representative:
I am still getting over the green carpet premiere of AOS last night in Delhi, after deciding that we will be getting involved on the 14th of September finally managing at least a months workload in a weeks time was a big challenge but the team managed it pretty smooth, the venue was a posh south Delhi multiplex called PVR which has a seating capacity of 422 people, after a couple of days of promotions, 100 posters put up across Delhi, print ads in the two leading English dailies, promotions on radio, non stop slogging for a week we were ready for the Big day.
A green carpet was laid at the venue with 10 volunteers running the show on ground, the guests started pouring at 6:30, among the vips we had director shekhar kapur who had given a message the same morning to Newyork from Rohtang pass, among other guests were also, co director of slumdog -luvleen tandon, photographer Raghu rai with his family, Jaya jaitley, ex climate negotiater and advisor with the planning comission on energy-surya sethi, a barrage of NGO's school principals, our cyber activists, supporters, friends and colleagues all added up to around 320 people occupying the Auditorium 4.
It started with Shekhar kapur sharing about his morning experience at the himalayas, which was followed by a one minute footage of his morning message to UNGA, then the film took over, i could only see the film in parts as i had to step out of the auditorium frequently to ensure reactions of people leaving midway but in end i did hear a huge round of applause for the movie. For me the highpoint of the day was, volunteers running the show on ground and our Fund-raising team were the guests of honor.
On September 21st / 22nd, on the eve of the UN General Assembly's climate session, The Age of Stupid was launched internationally at the biggest and greenest live film event the world has ever seen. A-list celebrities walked the green carpet to an eco cinema tent in downtown New York, linked by satellite to 700 cinemas in 50+ countries. Take a look at the photos below from the events around the world and see the Global Premiere page for the full report.
