Fight like your world depends on it
A decade after the release of An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore is back in this follow-up documentary directed by Audrie & Daisy helmers Bonnie Cohen and Jon Shenk.
Vice President Al Gore continues his tireless fight, travelling around the world training an army of climate champions and influencing international climate policy. Cameras follow him behind the scenes — in moments private and public, funny and poignant — as he pursues the empowering notion that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion.
“For those of us who need no convincing of the truth of man-made climate change, but find the problem too paralyzingly abstract, Gore’s workmanlike methods are both fascinating, encouraging, and, yes, even a little exciting”. Emily Yoshida, New York Magazine/Vulture
