“An Inconvenient Truth” (2006)

Al Gore’s famous slide show on climate change started in the 1980s when he was still the junior senator from Tennessee. Director Davis Guggenheim saw the updated presentation in 2004 and immediately knew it had to be made into a film. No one believed him, including Gore, but his persistence paid off as the $1.1M documentary made over $50M, won the Oscar for best feature documentary, and brought the alarming scientific data in front of millions of eyes.
