Hello Friends of the Farm,
Check out this trailer and info for a screening of the film “The Age of Stupid” and panel discussion at UBC on January 19th. Apparently there are some interesting agricultural references in the film.
UBC Continuing Studies Centre for Sustainability presents…
Watch the Explosive New Film “The Age of Stupid”
Join us for the sci-fi docu-drama described as the best climate change film to hit the big screen. Presented by UBC Continuing Studies Centre for Sustainability, The Age of Stupid follows a man living alone in the devastated world of 2055, looking at old footage from present day and asking: Why didn’t we stop climate change when we had the chance?
After the film a panel discussion featuring Brian Nattrass of Sustainability Partners Inc, Robert Safrata of Novex Couriers and Elisa Campbell of the UBC Design Centre for Sustainability will examine potential forward steps in the fight against climate change. Vanessa Timmer of One Earth will moderate the discussion. Find out more about the movie and the post-film panel.

The film was “so powerful and so moving I wanted it to go for another hour.”
– GILLIAN ANDERSON, ACTRESS
“Captivating and constantly surprising… the first successful dramatization of
climate change to reach the big screen.”
– THE GUARDIAN
“A much sterner and more alarming polemic than “An Inconvenient Truth,
[this film] will be taken by some as an emergency wake-up call to do everything
possible to avert impending catastrophe.”
– THE NEW YORK TIMES
