Pete Postlethwaite at the Not Stupid launch
Following the People's Premiere of The Age of Stupid, director Franny Armstrong and producer Lizzie Gillett launched the Not Stupid campaign. The aim is to convince the UK government - and hopefully those of other nations - to create a treaty at Copenhagen that will serve as the humanity's passport to salvation rather than its suicide pact. Pete Postlethwaite, who stars as the archivist who provides the movie's narrative strand, was unequivocal in his support of the campaign. Asked to make the first pledge of the campaign, he vowed to return his OBE if Copenhagen fails to gain commitment to significant and immediate decarbonisation measures.
