‘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.

  2. 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
