Pete Postlethwaite tribute screening in Warrington
Warrington Friends of the Earth and Warrington Council have joined forces to put on a one-off free screening of one of Pete Postlethwaite's last films, The Age of Stupid.
The screening will be on 22 March at 6pm at the Pyramid Arts Centre, Warrington.
The critically acclaimed film, released in 2009, places Pete Postlethwaite as an archivist in 2055. In a world devastated by climate change, the archivist looks back at missed opportunities and warning signs.
Pete Postlethwaite, who was born in Warrington in 1946 and still has family there, was a hugely successful Oscar winning actor. His career spanned over three decades and he appeared in such blockbusters as The Usual Suspects and Brassed Off.
The best actor in the world.
Pete was also a passionate campaigner on climate change.
Inspired by Pete Postlethwaite's own passion and actions on climate change, we felt it was a fitting tribute to put on a screening of his record-breaking film. The message is powerful and urges us towards action. Everyone should see this film.
The event, introduced by Friends of the Earth's Head of Activism, will also include stalls from local community groups.
