25 Sep (Fri): Free screening of "The Age of Stupid" and Forum

"The Age of Stupid" stars Oscar-nominated Pete Postlethwaite as an old man living in the devastated world of 2055. Watching 'archive' footage from 2008, he asks "why didn't we stop climate change while we had the chance?"

ONE (SINGAPORE) has secured permission to screen "The Age of Stupid" on Friday 25 September. This coincides with the global premiere of the movie.

The screening will be followed by a forum on "Inequality & Climate Justice; What Can You Do to End World Poverty?"

Speakers:
  • Vernetta Lopez, ONE (SINGAPORE) President, actress and radio DJ
  • Michael Switow, ONE (SINGAPORE) co-founder
This screening is part of the International Social Action Film Festival (S:ISAFF) hosted by Sinema Academy of Motion Pictures (SAMP). Unlike a regular film festival, S:ISAFF creates a strong complement of workshops, dialogue sessions and discussion forums with filmmakers, academics, policy makers, NGOs and concerned citizens to engage audiences on a variety of entertainment and educational levels.

Time: 9.30pm
Venue: Sinema Old School, 11B Mount Sophia, #B1-1.
Cost: Free but pre-registration is required.
To register: email peiqin@sinema.sg and write "Age of Stupid" in the subject heading
