Gore to re­lease se­quel film to global warm­ing doc­u­men­tary

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Va­lerie Richard­son

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.
