The Age of Stupid

McLibel Director Seeks Angels for Latest Film

Franny Armstrong, director of McLibel, recently listed as one of the ‘Ten Documentaries Which Changed The World’, is looking for backers for her latest film, The Age of Stupid. The producer is John Battsek, who produced the Oscar-winning One Day In September, the 1999 documentary film about the hostage crisis at the 1972 Munich Olympics.

Set in the runaway climate change world of 2055, this fast, furious and very funny film follows two animated teenagers as they look back at archive documentary footage from 2007. They ask: “Why didn’t they stop climate change while they had the chance?”

Spanner Films producer, Lizzie Gillett explains: “The film is utterly independent – mostly to give it the best chance of reaching a mainstream cinema audience. If the Age of Stupid is the ‘smash hit’ that we are dreaming of, the people who will benefit money-wise, are those who made it, those who star in it and those who financed it.”
