Inconvenient truth at the Melbourne Film Festival
Last night I went along to the Melbourne International Film Festival at the Regent Theatre to watch Al Gore’s compelling slide show on global warming made into a documentary by Davis Guggenheim. It is, as Gore says “a moral issue”, and the film should be seen widely. It left me asking questions such as what more can we do. Raising awareness about the urgency of the issue is the least we can do. A few edubloggers (including Chris Lehmann) are commenting on this and as George Couros says: “I would suggest that ALL people see this movie, no matter what your political beliefs are; it is important to learn about what we are doing to a place that has done so much for us.” Hear, hear.
