There are plenty of climate change documentaries to choose from out there, but a new one debuting in the UK next month is receiving lots of attention; with one journalist calling it the “best film on climate change that I have seen – and I’ve seen well over twenty.”

It’s called, appropriately enough, The Age of Stupid — and with a clever blend of CGI and live action clips is set in the future looking back at the present age we are in and our inaction to do anything substantial to slow or stop climate change. Oscar-nominated actor Pete Postlethwaite acts as a kind of guide on what went wrong and how the world spiraled further into environmental hell. From the article,

Armstrong has taken the doc genre and infused it with CGI (that while not quite Hollywood quality, still comes across as realistic and in-place), an industrious story-telling device, an incredibly talented and captivating narrator and actor, and a visually-stunning romp through the present age of over-consumption and denial. A fabulously funny, heart-wrenching and bizarre film, and a pastiche of visual delights that makes An Inconvenient Truth look like the boring slide show it actually is.

Sounds pretty good. The Age of Stupid debuts in the UK on March 20th. Check out the trailer below for a brief glimpse of what to expect:
