A few weeks ago, The Hammer Museum hosted a special screening of An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power with special guest Former Vice President, Al Gore. Though we weren’t able to sit in the theatre with Gore, we still got a sweet spot in the courtyard to view the documentary and listen to him speak.
The film is a sequel to Al Gore’s 2006 documentary, An Inconvenient Truth. Gore travels the world with activists to meet with governmental leaders and influential figures in his continual fight against climate change. We got to go behind the scenes as he openly speaks about his passion and his struggles against humankind’s most threatening issue.
Whether or not you have seen the first film, we think An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power is worth the watch. For those that feel like the fight against climate change is a losing one, you may find a sense of optimism after this documentary. While there were feelings of sadness and despair, there were also feelings of hope and encouragement. The documentary is a thought-provoking one that provides facts, statistics, and scenes from the effects of climate change, in addition to the progress we’ve made with green energy and green policies. Still, that is not enough. Gore’s underlying message, “there’s no time to waste,” and this is our wakeup call.
Have you seen the An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power? Did you feel the same way we felt? What did you think?
