THE FILM

 

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power is a 2017 American documentary film directed by Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk about former United States Vice President Al Gore's continuing mission to battle climate change. It is the sequel to the 2006 film An Inconvenient Truth.

 

The follow-up documentary addresses the progress made to tackle the problem and Gore's global efforts to persuade governmental leaders to invest in renewable energy, culminating in the landmark signing of 2016's Paris Agreement.


"The movie... can hardly hope to create the sensation of its Oscar-winning predecessor. But it finds plenty to add, both in cementing the urgency of Gore's message and in finding cause for hope."

Hollywood Reporter

 

"If An Inconvenient Truth prodded people with facts, its sequel grabs them by the ears until they know something."

Nerdist

 

"An Inconvenient Sequel comes close to sanctifying Gore; while he says he sometimes views the lack of global progress on climate change as "a personal failure," the film never encourages us to agree with him."

Rotten Tomato Rating: 72%

 

This film is due for general release around Australia in late August. This will be your chance to see it up to a month ahead - with a like minded group of people - and to start having that inconvenient conversation with your friends and family now.

WHAT'S INCLUDED FOR A $24 TICKET?

CLIMATE CHANGE ACTION IN OUR GLOBAL NEIGHBOURHOOD

  

This event will also be an introduction to Friends of Suai/Covalima's new Community Forestry & Climate Change Education Project in Timor Leste.

 

Friends of Suai/Covalima are working on a partnership with Australian social enterprise WithOneSeed, who have already successfully established in the Timor Leste community of Baguia a community forestry project. 

 

 

Subsistence farming communities can generate income through community forestry projects and improve their declining agricultural environments; but also importantly participate in the global carbon credit system: one of the meaningful economic efforts to turn the tide on climate change. This allows western countries to reduce and offset emissions - in line with the Paris Agreement - whilst benefiting the developing world.

WHO WILL YOU BE SUPPORTING?

 

Friends of Suai/Covalima

The Port Phillip community in January 2000 formally committed to assisting the East Timorese coastal community of Suai. The resulting Friends of Suai organisation is a relationship that goes beyond the usual concept of financial aid. It connects the community in the City of Port Phillip with the community of Suai in order to enrich and enhance the lives of all involved. In May 2010 the City of Port Phillip Council extended the hand of friendship and passed a resolution to extend the friendship agreement for a further ten years, and to expand support to the district of Covalima as well.
