The Age of Stupid

Imagine it’s 2055, and well, we’ve basically messed up with the whole Climate Change thing. Sort of let it be, and then watch the world around us change. What would you, in 2055, as an older citizen of the Earth think? How would you look back? What would you be thinking? Well, that’s part of the premise of a movie being screened at the UBC Norm on the 14th of October at 3pm.

Here’s the trailer:
