An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power

Rated General ~ Runs 98 minutes

Dir.: Bonni Cohen/Jon Shenk, US

Al Gore, Barack Obama, Hilary Ashford-Ng, George W. Bush

“A decade after An Inconvenient Truth raised moviegoers’ awareness about climate change, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power returns with another environmental documentary through a portrait of Al Gore. Rather than focusing on the former vice president’s slideshow this time the directors point their camera at Gore as he goes about his daily life as a high-powered activist, jetting from Greenland to Miami Beach to India to Silicon Valley to Paris for the landmark climate accord negotiations. Gore brings eloquence and humor to his interactions with scientists, politicians and citizens alike... And his relentless optimism, even in the face of crippling setbacks, is inspirational evidence that, yes, one person can make a difference. Perhaps most illuminating is the film’s fly-on-the-wall access to the behind-the-scenes negotiations required to effect significant political and economic change, including some tough talks between Gore and Indian officials about their country’s plans to keep building coal-burning plants. It’s an eye-opening primer on the complexity of the issue, with the future of the planet weighing against developing countries’ desire to provide for their people’s basic needs... Including a visit to Georgetown, Texas, a red city in a red county in a red state that is powered by 100 percent renewable energy. Gore’s delightful interaction with conservative Republican Mayor Dale Ross, who spearheaded the effort for economic and ‘common sense’ reasons, offers hope that climate change could indeed become a ‘post-political’ issue.” - Annlee Ellingson, L.A.
