Jon Shenk, Director and Bonni Cohen, Director, Participant Media, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power
The soon to be released sequel of An Inconvenient Truth, this show is the ultimate inside edition as we have a look into this new documentary and about what makes for a compelling climate story – whether for the big screen or a small group. Why did Jon and Bonni and some other successful Hollywood people believe there was another story to be told a decade after An Inconvenient Truth? And how did they convince Al Gore to say yes a second time around? What is the genesis of Truth to Power? Former Vice President Al Gore has continued his tireless fight, traveling around the world to train an army of activists and influence international climate policy. Hopefully Jon and Bonni will share some snippets of what they experienced as they followed him behind the scenes — in moments both private and public, funny and poignant. And I will ask them why Al Gore, as he pursues the inspirational idea that while the stakes have never been higher, believes the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion.
