Gore’s “Truth” DVD boasts earth-friendly package
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Mother Nature won’t be harmed when former Vice President Al Gore’s hit global-warming documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” comes out on DVD November 21.
The DVD packaging consists entirely of waste products that have been recycled, including paper, inks and coatings formulated to emit virtually no volatile organic compounds into the atmosphere. That means no plastics and no laminates.
“An Inconvenient Truth,” a Paramount release directed by David Guggenheim, grossed $22.7 million in U.S. theaters, a huge amount for a documentary.
“I’m excited about the documentary’s release on DVD,” Gore said in an interview. “The DVD is a vital way for us to continue the conversation about global warming with even more Americans. As more and more people understand what’s at stake, they become a part of the solution, and share both in the challenges and opportunities presented by the climate crises.”
The DVD will feature a new introduction by Gore, with updates on global temperatures, population, hurricanes, projections of soil moisture and more. Also included: the Melissa Etheridge music video “I Need to Wake Up,” and audio commentaries from Guggenheim and producers Lawrence Bender, Scott Burns, Laurie David and Lesley Chilcott.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each DVD will be donated to Alliance for Climate Protection, a bipartisan environmental group.
