team stupid (6.18am after global premiere hat folgendes geschrieben:

Will leave others to write about the first part (USA) of the Global
Premiere.... not least because none of us still standing at 6.18am in
New York have two braincells to rub together...

See you

The Huffington Post today
"One of the most important films of the year (perhaps decade).....
The Age of Stupid represents the future of film, film culture and film
distribution and marketing. Filmmakers need to realize that getting
your film in front of an audience is at least half of their job as
filmmakers. The filmmakers behind The Age of Stupid get it. They get
it to the nth degree and it is exciting. They are blazing a trail for
filmmakers to not only release their films in their home countries,
but around the world. We are on the verge of a new dawn, where fans
support the films they want to see and where those films can create a
worldwide theatrical release without studio support. You should go see
this film not because I feel it is a great film (I haven't seen it
yet!) but because you will be participating in the rebirth of film
culture." -

First reactions from the American cinema
Tonight I, my husband, and my 10 year old daughter were part of the
global screening of The Age of Stupid. What utter, simple, brilliant
work. To be so suddenly and powerfully presented with the clear
responsibility of my generation ... words cannot possibly express
what this does to one's body, mind and spirit. Truly. I thank you
all for your faith, brilliance, vision, humor, and love. Let's do
this together. - Karen H xoxox
Saw "The Age of Stupid" tonight. Blew my mind, I highly highly highly
recommend you see it and then do something about climate change NOW!

Goodness, sadness, anger; such a range of emotion is difficult to
evoke, and #AgeofStupid has done it! A movie, yes - a wake up call

Just back from seeing @ageofstupid. I will sell my car in a few weeks.

wow. at the screening of @ageofstupid and delightfully inspired

What a compelling film and interactive global event. We cannot rely on
our corporate leaders for change. WE have to be those leaders, movers
and shakers. The time is imminent, and I expect to see millions
globally hitting the streets to demand change from the Copenhagen

Watched the movie in florida tonight and it was purely an awakening!
Thanks to all the people who worked on it! I am going to be spreading
the word and be taking some action! We all can do something! We all
NEED to do something!

What an incredible film!!! Just saw it in Los Angeles. I am so moved.
Thank you for making this film! I want everyone to see it and make
sure Copenhagen happens!!

Just got home from the premier of The Age of Stupid, in West Palm
Beach, Florida....I have never seen such a moving screening. I believe
that there is something we all can do. My friends and I do what we can
to help the environment, more can be done ...and we want to get people
together to change things in our area. We want to get colleges
together to screen this video. We too are college students and we
don't want to just leave this issue alone. Thank you

I just saw this in Austin! It's a clear and present danger to us all!

Absolutely fantastic loved the funky homespun local rally feel - VERY
HUMAN! watched in California

Had an awesome time at todays Green Carpet for Age of Stupid premiere
in NYC. great film..must see!

The Age of Stupid: Film und Diskussion

FR 13.11. 16:00
HS C, befreite Vorklinik, KF-Uni Graz


Anfang Dezember finden in Kopenhagen die Verhandlungen über ein
umfangreiches Abkommen zur Begrenzung des Klimawandels statt. Am
Freitag (13.November) gibt's als Vorbereitung auf die
Verhandlungen in Kopenhagen im besetzten Hörsaal C1 am Unicampus eine
Vorführung des Films 'The Age of Stupid' mit anschließender Diskussion.

Start: 16:00

'The Age of Stupid' der kritischen Filmemacherin Franny Armstrong
('McLibel') zeigt, was passieren könnte, wenn wir weiterhin auf die
Herausforderung des anthropogenen Klimawandels nicht adäquat reagieren.

Der Hauptdarsteller (Pete Postlethwaite) blickt aus dem Jahr 2055 als
alter Mann auf unsere Epoche und fragt das Publikum: "Warum haben wir
nicht genug getan um den Klimawandel zu stoppen?"

The Age of Stupid ist gleichzeitig ein wichtiges Element der
internationalen zivilgesellschaftlichen Anstrengungen in Kopenhagen
ein ambitioniertes, faires und bindendes Abkommen zu erwirken.

Danach wird es eine D i s k u s s i o n zu Klimawandel und -politik
geben, an der ihr alle eingeladen seid, teilzunehmen. Es wird kurze
Statements zum letzten Stand der Klimagipfel-Verhandlungen und der
östereichischen Klimapolitik geben.

Wie groß ist die Kluft zwischen den 'Klimaversprechungen' und der
österreichischen/europäischen Klimapolitik und wie können wir sie
