Two Environmental Films

21st October 2009, Wednesday

The Age Of Stupid and The End of the Line are two new environmental films being shown at the RYE COMMUNITY CENTRE in the next few weeks. Entry will be free, but donations to costs welcomed. For more detail…
FRIDAY OCTOBER 23rd at 7.30pm.
The Age Of Stupid is the new cinema documentary from the Director of ‘McLibel’. This enormously ambitious drama-documentary-animation stars Oscar-nominated Pete Postlethwaite as an old man living in the devastated world of 2055, watching “archive” footage from 2008 and asking: why didn’t we stop climate change while we had the chance?
FRIDAY NOVEMBER 27th at 7.30pm.
The End of the Line, the first major feature documentary film revealing the impact of overfishing on our oceans. In the film we see firsthand the effects of our global love affair with fish as food. It examines the imminent extinction of bluefin tuna, brought on by increasing western demand for sushi; the impact on marine life resulting in huge overpopulation of jellyfish; and the profound implications of a future world with no fish that would bring certain mass starvation.
