Oblivious to Oblivion

Double page centrefold for The Age of Stupid in yesterday's Sun. The film's star Pete Postlethwaite explains in the article why he had to take part: “When I looked at the subject and what the film was trying to do there was no option really. I had to do it.

“The stakes are very, very high. They’re through the roof.

“How could we willingly know that we’re going into extinction... and let it happen.”

The piece draws on the chilling (!) parallels between predictions in the film for 2055 (images of Sydney Opera House in flames) and the recent bush fires in southern Australia.
