22nd November. This page is under construction, sorry for all the mess. The screening information is correct.
South Africa, along with the rest of Africa, is one of the countries likely to suffer the effects of climate change the most. Although there was no theatrical release for the global launch, there have been several screenings of the film since, and judging from the response we expect these to increase as time goes by.
Despite the best efforts of our international distributors, no cinemas were booked in South Africa for the 22nd September global premiere. We knew that support for the film was strong though from the number of people who asked how they could take part.
Sadly, because we didn't know the situation with the cinemas until the last minute, those people were unable to take part in the global premiere.
When Indie Screenings launched internationally on October 24th, the support was clearly still very high and there have been several screenings of the film since, with more planned into the New Year.
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.
