Gore to release sequel film to global warming documentary
Former Vice President Al Gore plans to unveil in January a sequel to “An Inconvenient Truth,” his widely lauded but hotly disputed 2006 climate change documentary.
The yet-untitled follow-up from Paramount Pictures trails Mr. Gore “as he continues his decades-long fight to build a more sustainable future for our planet,” according to a press release.
The winner of two Academy Awards, “An Inconvenient Truth” was credited with putting global warming on the political map, but also accused by critics of scaremongering by exaggerating the impact of increased carbon dioxide emissions in the atmosphere.
The sequel is scheduled to debut Jan. 19 on the opening day of the Sundance Film Festival, with its release in theaters following later in 2017.
