MANILA, Philippines (Aug. 29, 2017) — The much-awaited follow-up to Nobel laureate Al Gore’s award-winning 2006 documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, premiered in the Philippines on Monday night, August 28.

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power reminds the world what can happen when regular citizens take a stand. The film showcases Climate Reality Leadership Corps trainings, where people from all walks of life come to work with Gore and other experts, learning key climate science and gaining the skills to lead their communities in the fight for climate solutions.

The film also highlights what happened behind the scenes during the historic climate change conference in Paris in 2015. It shows how some countries are transitioning to renewable energy.

Among the personalities who graced the premiere screening were Senator Loren Legarda, Senator Risa Hontiveros, Sec Emmanuel de Guzman of the Climate Change Commission, and Deputy Head of Mission of the French Embassy in Philippines Laurent Le Godec.

Media practioners and advocates participated in a panel discussion moderated by MovePH editor Voltaire Tupaz after the documentary was shown. Members of the panel included broadcast journalist Atom Araullo, Greenpeace Philippines executive director Yeb Saño, Caritas Philippines executive secretary Fr Edu Gariguez, Climate Reality Project Philippines country manager Rodne Galicha, and Climate Reality Leader John Leonard Chan.

The Climate Reality Project also recognized Araullo (ABS-CBN), Tupaz (Rappler), Howie Severino (GMA 7), and Imelda Visaya Abano (Philippine Network of Environmental Journalists).
