An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power - Schools Screening


Back in 2006, filmmaker Davis Guggenheim won an Oscar for his documentary An Inconvenient Truth, which followed former presidential candidate Al Gore as he campaigned to raise public awareness of the dangers of global warming, and called for immediate action to curb its destructive effects on the environment. The worldwide impact of that film was remarkable, dramatically bringing climate change into the heart of popular culture, with its powerful tagline “We’re all on thin ice”. Ten years on (and following America’s recent, controversial withdrawal from the Paris Agreement) this timely follow-up reveals what has happened over the last decade, and what progress has been made in the search for a real energy revolution. Cameras once again follow Al Gore as he travels the world, going behind the scenes as he leads his Climate Leadership Training seminars, revealing both the private and public moments of a very determined man on a time-critical mission.

In bringing this film back during Discovery for school audiences, we very much see this as a stimulus for debate back in the classroom. At a time when climate change deniers have ascended into the highest rungs of global politics, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power presents its vision of the rapidly-changing world and asks its audiences to “fight like your world depends on it”.

“Climate changes. Truth does not”. Discuss.
