Filmmaker Davis Guggenheim follows Al Gore on the lecture circuit, as the former presidential candidate campaigns to raise public awareness of the dangers of global warming and calls for immediate action to curb its destructive effects on the environment.
To keep the U.S. a democracy, with fair elections, you must see this and show it to friends. It's rather shocking to see how easy it is for people in power to upstage the public's right to elect their leaders. Unprecedented details the events of the 2000 election from beginning to end. It puts the events in perspective so that you will see all of what actually occurred; all the "out of public view" maneuvering that did not get covered by the press. I was shocked and saddened to see what has become of our voting system, and the ability of a very few, carefully-placed, powerful actors to control and even change election outcomes. Film also highlights the difficulties in having Presidential Campaign Managers be the County Registrar of Voters. The film becomes an adult civics lesson, important to everyone who cares about democracy.
