Runtime: 98 minutes
Directed by Bonnie Cohen and Jon Shenk
Starring: Al Gore
Synopsis: A decade after An Inconvenient Truth brought climate change into the heart of popular culture comes the riveting and rousing follow-up that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution. Vice President Al Gore continues his tireless fight, traveling around the world training an army of climate champions and influencing international climate policy. Cameras follow him behind the scenes-in moments private and public, funny and poignant-as he pursues the empowering notion that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion. What started then as a profound slide show lecture has become a gorgeously cinematic excursion.
There’s more doom and gloom–but also hope for meaningful change–to be found in Al Gore’s followup to his Oscar-blessed 2006 doc that sounded the alarm about global warming. -Toronto Star
Gore declares that we cannot go back, we cannot lose ground, we cannot surrender — but he seems as at a loss as anyone else about what to do next. Which makes An Inconvenient Sequel a pretty accurate document of the times. -The Atlantic
