THE response of two Biosphere Reserves in North Devon and Kenya to an increase in sea levels is the subject of a short film playing at The Plough Arts Centre in Torrington this week.Rising Tides will precede the Plough screening of the much talked about The Age of Stupid drama-documentary on Thursday and Friday of next week (April 23/24,) which delivers a slap in the face to anyone complacent about climate change.The 20-minute film Rising Tides is directed by Timothy Copestake and focuses on how the Biosphere Reserves and communities of North Devon and Malindi-Watamu are reacting and responding to the problems climate change is bringing to their coastal areas. It was produced by TV Trust for the Environment for the BBC.The Age of Stupid by director Franny Armstrong has been praised by many as an eye opener about the impact of climate change and humanity's tendency to bury its collective head in the sand.Part drama, documentary and animation, it stars Pete Postlethwaite as a lone survivor in 2055, looking back at footage from the present day and mourning the stupidity of his ancestors.The shows at the Plough begin at 8pm on both nights.
