I’m off to a film premiere on Sunday evening. But no red carpet at Leicester Square.
The Age of Stupid is having a record-breaking ‘people’s premiere’ with simultaneous screenings at dozens of cinemas across the country. It’s a docu-drama about the impact of climate change, starring Pete Postlethwaite as a lone survivor in the future looking back on our age, the age that could avert disaster if we act.
I’m going to be treading the green carpet at the Islington Vue, along with my friend Betty Harris. Betty helped fund the film, making her an angel from the Angel! And though the Islington premiere screening is sold out, the film can be seen at The Screen on the Green on Sunday 29th March, Tuesday 31st March and Thursday 2nd April, all at 2 p.m.
