MMP Network-Wide Screening

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power will be shown at 15 Meaningful Movie venues over the next 6 months.  This follow-up film to the Academy Award®-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth highlights former Vice President Al Gore, as he continues to educate and to persuade regarding sensible solutions to climate change.  With superb cinematography, an excellent soundtrack and focused story line, this is a powerful, must-see documentary.  With An Inconvenient Sequel showing at multiple Meaningful Movie venues, you’ll be able to view it at least once and perhaps two or three times and join in civil discussion about the movie.  As Al Gore says “In order to fix the climate crisis, we’re going to have to fix the democracy crisis”.
