A decade after An Incovenient Truth brought the climate crisis into the heart of popular culture, comes the riveting and rousing follow-up that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution. Former Vice President Al Gore continues his tireless fight, traveling around the world (including typhoon Haiyan-hit Tacloban City in the Philippines), training an army of climate champions and influencing international climate policy. Cameras follow him behind the scenes – in moments both private and public, funny and poignant — as he pursues the inspirational idea that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion.
An Inconvenient Truth received widespread critical acclaim and brought international attention to the climate crisis. Now, as An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power premieres more than a decade later, the stakes are higher than ever – but we know the climate crisis can be overcome with the renewable energy solutions available right now.
An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power reminds us what can happen when regular citizens take a stand. The film showcases the Climate Reality Leadership Corps trainings. where people from all walks of life come to work with Vice President Gore and other experts, learning key climate science and gaining the skills to lead their communities in the fight for climate solutions.
“The film also features how the Philippines experienced the ill-effects of the climate crisis such as Supertyphoon Haiyan while showing hope that the global community is urgently acting on it,” said Rodne Galicha, country manager of the Climate Reality Project.
“Through this documentary film, we hope to raise public awareness and understanding of climate change in all sectors and levels in the country and to call for greater and more ambitious climate action,” said Galicha.
Distributed by Columbia Pictures, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power will be shown exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas (Trinoma & Glorietta 4) starting August 30, 2017.
