Film: “AGE OF STUPID - Why didn’t We save Ourselves When We Had the Chance?” (92 min, Franny Armstrong, 2009). With a facilitated discussion afterward with Transition Seattle members.
A film about the future we could face if we don't make changes- and quickly. This one is not for the fainthearted, because the combination of documentary and a fictionalized "future" as told by the narrator carries double the impact of a purely factual film. That said, the message is conveyed creatively and clearly. Pete Postelwaite is entirely believable as the weary archivist of the future, who is still in disbelief at the facts available to humanity in 2010- and how easy it was for even the most well-intentioned of us to ignore them at times.
