An Inconvenient Truth

Directed by Davis Guggenheim

This is the hit documentary taken from the ‘little slide show’ by former US presidential candidate Al Gore. Going where many politicians – and their constituents – fear to tread, it convincingly displays evidence and effects of global warming caused by carbon emissions. At turns humorous and terrifying, the film mixes Gore’s engaging presentation with archival footage of natural disasters to chart the crisis of climate change. AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH exists to inspire action – by individuals and governments alike. See it and then play your part.

Al Gore has also written a book on the subject titled, not suprisingly, An Inconvenient Truth. Published by Bloomsbury, it will be available in the Cornerhouse foyer bookshop from the beginning of September.
