Screenings in Viet Nam

22nd November. This page is under construction, sorry for all the mess. The screening information is correct.

The NGO community in Hanoi pulled together to get the film screened as part of the global launch on the 22nd September at the Hanoi Cinematheque. Further screenings followed and we hope for more in the coming months and years.

Because the film had to be passed by the classification office in Vietnam, the film was actually sent on the 2nd September. It was taken out to Vietnam by one of the members of Live and Learn (one of the NGO supporters of the film), who was also the Vietnamese translator.

It passed the classification process and was screened at 7pm on the 22nd September. The following day we received this email;

Dear Age of Stupid team,
The Hanoi premiere in Vietnam on Sep 22 evening was successful and attracted nearly 200 people to come.
They all expressed various emotions like “touching”, “impressive”, even “scary”, “sad”; “worried about our future generation and ourselves” and one person was brought to tears.
People also make commitments to protect our environment by saving energy, green transportation, reducing consumption, save water and many other ways to contribute our movement to live more greenly and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
Attached file is list of audience – sorry, due to poor conditions that day, we lack of many audience’s contact (only 125 of nearly 200 are listed).
Best regards,
The He Xanh
Good work Vietnam!

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. A-list celebrities walked the green carpet to an eco cinema tent in downtown New York, linked by satellite to 700 cinemas in 50+ countries. Take a look at the photos below from the events around the world and see the Global Premiere page for the full report.

Sorry we couldn't organise a Global Premiere event in your country, we tried our best. Instead, you can watch the film online for free here until the 22nd of October.
