Join DeSmogBlog president Jim Hoggan at the Vancouver International Film Festival on October 6th for a public screening of the new climate film ‘The Age of Stupid.’
Jim will be on hand to sign copies of his groundbreaking new book Climate Cover-up: The Crusade to Deny Global Warming.
The Vancouver International Film Festival runs October 1-16 and features public screenings of The Age of Stupid as part of its extensive environmental program, The Way of Nature.
The Age of Stupid is the new four-year epic from McLibel director Franny Armstrong.
Oscar-nominated Pete Postlethwaite stars as a man living alone in the devastated world of 2055, looking at old footage from 2008 and asking: why didn’t we stop climate change when we had the chance?
This event is presented by PowerUP Canada, a leading voice for strong laws, investments and policies to support the expansion of a clean economy and combat global warming. PowerUP Canada recently launched “Time to Get Serious on Climate Change.” Follow their climate blog at www.zerocarboncanada.ca.
Critical acclaim for The Age of Stupid
“The Age Of Stupid is the most powerful, well-researched and emotional films that I have seen in recent memory. The choice is ours, do we listen to the message it so clearly lays out, or ignore it, at our peril. I can only pray that we have the wisdom to make the right choice”.
– Ed Begley, Jr.
“It is a captivating and constantly surprising film: the first successful dramatisation of climate change to reach the big screen”.
– George Monbiot, journalist & author, The Guardian
Critical acclaim for Climate Cover-Up
“Climate Cover-Up documents one of the most disgusting stories ever hidden about corporate disinformation. What you’ll discover in this book amounts to proof of an intergenerational crime.”
DAVID SUZUKI, Author of The Sacred Balance and Good News for a Change.
“An exposé of planetary scale.”
JAMES E. HANSEN, Director, NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies
“This book explains how the propaganda generated by self-interest groups has purposely created confusion about climate change. It’s an imperative read for a successful future.”
LEONARDO DICAPRIO, Actor and Producer
