22nd November. This page is under construction, sorry for all the mess. The screening information is correct.
Iran, a significant country for political sway and fossil fuel reserves, could not join the Global Premiere as planned, due to logistical problems. We hope that awareness of the film grows in the coming months and years and are led to believe that there will be a few internal screenings at the UN before the end of 2009.
We all thought this was going to be great premiere - a screening of the film in Iran (and at the UN no less) would have been fantastic - but unfortunately it just wasn't to be. For some reason, despite the fact that we sent it in plenty of time, the DVDs never arrived in Switzerland to make it into the diplomatic bag.
We tried to get a version of the film ready for download but we weren't able to do that either and so, at the last minute, the global launch screening in Iran had to be cancelled. A DVD was taken out to Iran a week or so later but as far as we're aware a screening has not yet taken place.
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.
The Age of Stupid DVD double-disc extravaganza, in 31 languages and with more than six hours of Extras is now available to pre-order here. From October 5th anyone anywhere can buy a license to screen The Age of Stupid in their school/pub/church/multinational oil corporation. First screening date: October 24th (=international day of climate action). More info from the Indie Screenings website or join the mailing list for a reminder when booking opens.
