Hey, Young Post readers, competition details below!
In 2006, Al Gore’s documentary film An Inconvenient Truth shone a light on the issue of climate change and global warming, and was also a stark warning about the risks our planet faces from continuing carbon emissions. The original film was critically acclaimed, winning two Academy Awards, one for Best Documentary Feature and one for Best Original Song.
Now more than a decade later, the long-awaited sequel documentary, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power sends yet another strong message calling for everyone to take action to prevent potential climate catastrophe.
This new documentary, directed by Bonni Choen and Jon Shenk, follows the Former US Vice President Al Gore as he continues to fight climate change, showing his attempts to persuade governments to invest in renewable and non-carbon emitting energy sources.
This documentary carries a strong positive message for action against climate change, and shows Al Gore fighting to educate people and governments alike. He also lobbies for the reforms the earth needs around the world, which culminates in the landmark Paris Climate Agreement in 2016.
While the documentary was originally released at the Sundance Film Festival in early 2017, the film would later be re-edited before the cinema release, to show the antagonistic role that US president Donald Trump played in the United States’ withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement.
This documentary provides an interesting and alarming update into the state of the world’s climate, and is a must see for anyone concerned about the fate of the planet.
