The Taiwanese Premiere was held on the 22nd September with a free screening at the Armed Forces Cultural Center in Taipei. 450 people attend the screening, which was a massive success and a fantastic turn out. Writing about the film on their blog - the organisers of the screening had the following to say;

Despite Taiwan's ambiguous international status and limited involvement in international bodies, Taiwan can and should play a major role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Taiwan’s annual per capita CO2 emissions from combustion of fossil fuels are currently about 13 metric tons annually compared to a global average of about 4.5. Taiwan’s heavy industries including petroleum refining and plastics, steel production, and fossil fuel dependent electricity generation are responsible for over half of all emissions.

To successfully reduce these emissions we need to show our governments that we are alarmed at the threat of climate change and demand a decisive response. In these last crucial months we should take both personal and public actions to demonstrate our awareness and alarm. If humanity is to transition to a low carbon lifestyle, our habits and expectations must change. In the words of Yann Arthus-Bertrand, the French photographer and a 2009 Time magazine hero of the environment, "We [in high-consuming societies] have to live with less. Less food, less meat, less fuel, less shopping."

So don’t wait for the change to happen, be the change yourself! There is no better or more-important time to start biking or using public transport, stop buying so much unnecessary junk, eating more healthily, and being conscientious about energy consumption.

 

It's fabulous to see that so many people are aware of the issues and that they are doing everything they can to educate others.

On September 21st / 22nd, on the eve of the UN General Assembly's climate session, The Age of Stupid was launched internationally at the biggest and greenest live film event the world has ever seen.

Take a look at the photos below from the events around the world and see the Global Premiere page for the full report.
