This Week’s Snag Film: The Age of Stupid

Snag Films kicks off their SummerFest with The Age of Stupid, a film from Oscar-nominated actor Pete Postlethwaite (of The Lost World: Jurassic Park and The Usual Suspects fame) plays an old man living in the devastated world of 2055 in this documentary-drama-animation hybrid from Director Franny Armstrong and Oscar-winning Producer John Battsek.

“Runaway climate change has ravaged the planet by 2055. Pete plays the founder of The Global Archive, a storage facility located in the (now melted) Arctic, preserving all of humanity’s achievements in the hope that the planet might one day be habitable again. Pulling together clips of archive news and documentary from 1950-2008 to build a message showing what went wrong and why, Pete’s exploration surfaces compelling footage and complex issues facing us in our world today. He asks: Why didn’t we stop climate change when we had the chance?”

And don’t forget that you can create a custom Snag Films theater widget any time you want!  We searched for the terms “military” and “soldiers” and found several fascinating documentaries, or type in “On Common Ground” or “Red, White, Black, and Blue” to get you started with some family-friendly fare.

You can always search for what interests you, and share these films whenever and wherever you like…
