An Inconvenient Sequel (PG) Truth to Power

Truth to Power
Directors: Bonni Cohen, Jon Shenk
Cast: Al Gore, Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Donald Trump (archive material)

Former Vice President Al Gore continues his tireless fight, traveling around the world to train an army of activists and influence 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. Renowned filmmakers Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk (Audrie and Daisy, 2016 Sundance Film Festival) have taken the baton from 2006 Academy Award-winner Davis Guggenheim.
