‘Age of Stupid’ Porty Premiere — what’s next? ‘Home’!

It looks as though the next film is likely to be ‘Home’, we expect it to be shown at St Philips on Wednesday 14th October … but we await confirmation …

But, just to remind you of the last film: The Porty Premiere of Age of Stupid film Sunday 21st June at St Philips Church Hall, Brunstane Road North was a great suc­cess. Tea, cakes, wine and beer were laid on by the St Philips fim soci­ety … the film was power­ful … the dis­cus­sion led by Ewan Aitken of eco-con­greg­a­tions was really good.

Thanks to Stewart Weaver of  St Philips, and Jane Herbstritt of the World Development Movement for mak­ing this happen!

If you missed it, the Age of Stupid is well worth see­ing: it’s well made, fast mov­ing, cov­ers the issues, has good and enga­ging human stor­ies in it BUT (or should that be AND?!) it does face the facts of cli­mate change very dir­ectly and is ima­gin­ing a per­fectly pos­sible scen­ario in which human­ity is about to be no more. This is a vital real­ity to face in order that we don’t take that route

    Hi PEDAL-Porty
    The recent events have all looked really bril­liant (great posters) and sorry not to be able to be with you. I also am a PEDAL mem­ber and wondered if you had my e-mail address? (for both Nik Savage and myself) It would be good to be able to receive PEDAL news through an e-mail. This isn’t always pos­sible, I know, as time is short for every­one, but is a good way of keep­ing the news out there to mem­bers. I will make sure that I look up the web-site on a more reg­u­lar basis too. I saw Age of Stupid at Ocean Terminal and was inspired to see PEDAL pro­mot­ing a scree­ing in Portobello. I would def­in­itely love to see Yann Arthus Bertrand’s ‘Home’ as I was out of Edinburgh at it’s one-off screen­ing last month. Many thanks and hope to see you soon.

I am really annoyed at myself for miss­ing the film but I only noticed a poster about it out­side the Bank of Scotland this morn­ing (24th july) .I thought by becom­ing a mem­ber I would have been sent an e-mail about up com­ing events.I hope I will be able to catch it at the Brunton Theartre on 1st july.
    all the best
