This month's film: The Age of Stupid (2009)
The new four-year epic from McLibel director Franny Armstrong. Oscar-nominated Pete Postlethwaite stars as a man living alone in the devastated world of 2055, looking at old footage from 2008 and asking, Why didn’t we stop climate change when we had the chance?
On September 21 and 22, on the eve of the UN General Assembly's climate session, The Age of Stupid had a global premiere billed as the "biggest and greenest live film event ever": 700 screenings in 50+ countries.
Stephen Johnson, a Greenpeace lead activist, will be on hand for discussion. He organized a screening at BEAHIVE's Kingston location as part of the 350.org International Day of Climate Action, Oct. 24. Roughly 60 people attended.

Each month at this intimate, informal gathering at the hive, we show a film with a message — sometimes entertaining, sometimes political, always inspiring, engaging and thought provoking.
We start the evening with a kind of bring-your-own happy hour and then screen the film around 7pm. We'll have healthy, organic popcorn. Please bring something to drink and other food to share if you like.
Open to the public — bring friends. No charge.
