An Inconvenient Truth changed the way the world looks at global worming.
The controversial Al Gore film was made in 2006 and immediately delivered an impact. The film examines the science of global warming along with examinging the history of Al Gore’s lifelong commitment to reverse it. A longtime advocate for the environment, Gore presents a wide array of facts and information in a thoughtful and compelling way through a documentary style of film. A movie critic had the following to say about the film: “Al Gore strips his presentations of politics, laying out the facts for the audience to draw their own conclusions in a charming, funny and engaging style, and by the end has everyone on the edge of their seats, gripped by his haunting message”.
The film is known as the beginning of the current “Green Revolution” that is seeing people, organizations and companies changing their ways to help the environment.
The film did not come without critics itself, as many people dismissed what Gore was saying as delusional and false. To this day, people still doubt that global warming even exists.
The film was made with a budget of a little over 1 Million, and grossed over 49 million in the box office, making it one of the most successful documentaries of all time. The film was made in a totally “green” way, with all of the equipment being environmentally friendly, the DVD boxes being made from recycled water bottles and the vehicles used for crew and gear transportation were all hybrids.
An Inconvenient Truth has made a huge impact on the world, as greenhouse emissions have reduced in many countries since the movie was released. Soon after the film was released, many laws around the world were put into place involving carbon emissions and waste reduction.
