2 minutes read

Sequel to famous environmental film to debut at Sundance festival in January 2017

An Inconvenient Truth was a ground-breaking Oscar-winning documentary on climate change released in 2006. Next year, former Vice President Al Gore will be showing the follow-up, An Inconvenient Sequel, premiering at the Sundance Film Festival. Directed by Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk, the sequel follows Gore as he continues his decades-long fight to build a more sustainable future for our planet.

Ten years after An Inconvenient Truth brought climate change into the heart of popular culture comes the riveting follow-up that shows both the escalation of the crisis and the real solutions we have close at hand.

Former Vice President Al Gore said, “Now more than ever we must rededicate ourselves to solving the climate crisis. But we have reason to be hopeful; the solutions to the crisis are at hand. I’m deeply honoured and grateful that Paramount Pictures and Participant Media have once again taken on the task of bringing the critical story of the climate crisis to the world.”

Executive producer, founder and chairman of Participant Media Jeff Skoll said, “A decade after we took a risk in backing a film centred around a slide show presentation and one human’s quest to awaken global consciousness about our changing planet, we are proud to bring global audiences a promising update: that a future powered by clean, safe, renewable, inexpensive, non-polluting energy is no longer a dream but a very attainable reality.”

Commented directors Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk, “It has been our honor to work with Participant on the follow-up to An Inconvenient Truth. Climate change is the story of our time and following Al Gore during this critical moment in history has been both sobering and incredibly inspiring. We couldn’t be more excited to have Paramount taking the film out to a wide audience around the world.”

Stepping beyond the limits of the first movie’s focus on Gore’s inspirational slide presentation, An Inconvenient Sequel travels the world and delivers an inspirational story of change in the making.

After its January 19th premiere at Sundance, Paramount Pictures will release the film later in 2017.
