the age of stupid [ 2009 ]
-Bulunduğumuz yer, Global arşiv… Dünyadaki bütün canlılardan ikişer kopya sakladık!”
Dünya denilen gezegende yaşam bitmiştir!
Çok çok uzak bir gelecek de değil… 2055 yılını anlatıyor…
Bugüne dek iklim değişikliği üzerine bireysel desteklerle yapılmış en etkili bağımsız yapımlardan olan Aptallık Çağı (Age of Stupid), 2055 yılında yaşayan bir adamın kendi ağzından anlattığı hikayeyi konu alıyor. Fırsatımız varken iklim değişimini neden durdurmadığımızı sorgulayan film, dünyanın yardım çığlıklarını duymazdan gelen insanların yaşadığı bir çağı ve sonunda pişmanlığı gözler önüne seriyor.
The story begins in the year 2055. A man known as the archivist of all art and acquired knowledge in the world, portrayed by Pete Postlethwaite, reviews archive footage from back “when we could have saved ourselves”. The footage he reviews consists of news reports showing the effects of a changing climate and is intertwined with six individual stories:
Al Duvernay is shown to having stayed behind and helped in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina. He also reflects on his job in the oil industry and how valuable resources are being wasted.
Indian business man Jeh Wadia talks about the start-up of his low cost airline GoAir and his desire for all people not just the rich to be able to afford to travel by air.
An Iraqi family, that has fled to Jordan because of the Iraq War, tell the story of their fathers death. The focus is on two children of the family, Jamila and Adnan.
An English family take a tour of the Mont Blanc glacier in France and their guide is eighty two year-old Fernand Pareau a local who has seen the glacier recede massively in his lifetime. The guide is also shown taking action against expanding road infrastructure in his area.
The father of the same English family, Piers Guy talks about his efforts to develop wind farms and how he is blocked by people who profess a commitment to fighting global warming but do not want a wind turbine destroying their views. His family takes action in reducing their carbon footprint and contemplate the effects of air travel.
Layefa Malemi is a Nigerian woman who struggles with poverty despite the wealth of oil in her country. She talks about her aspiration to become a medical student and the everyday impact of the exploitation of oil by Shell Nigeria on the health, security and environment in Nigeria.
A fast forward from 2008 to 2054 shows the effects of ignoring the signs of climate change. In the end the message of the archivist is beamed into space.
