The Spirit Level documentary: bringing the message to millions | Katharine Round

We want to make a film about inequality with the impact of An Inconvenient Truth. You can help make it happen

I've long been passionate about the role that film can play in creating social change, and in the last few years it is starting to look as though this potential is being realised.

In 2006, Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth was credited with raising global public awareness of climate change. Gore had been making presentations on the issue around the world for some time, but it was the film which took the message to millions. Why was it so effective? Film has the power to engage people on a number of levels: it can bring data to life, showing stories, themes and arguments in ways that words on a page cannot. And Gore's film also showed what could be done about the problem.

Films can also show the human side of statistics, »
