Al Gore at Town Hall: ‘Every Night Is a Nature Hike Through the Book of Revelations’ (Listen)

21 July 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Washington, D.C. — Al Gore says that recent environmental devastation and extreme weather, more than anything, is what is changing minds on the climate crisis.

Appearing at a SiriusXM/Variety town hall on Thursday, tied to the release of Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk’s new movie “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” Gore traces climate denial to the economic meltdown in 2008. Before that, the nominees of both parties, Barack Obama and John McCain, acknowledged that action needed to be taken to address climate change.

“You saw, really, the beginning of the modern fever of climate denial in the Republican party start then,” Gore said in the town hall. “But we are seeing pushback, now, and we are seeing a lot of changes with people who don’t want to engage in the argument. They don’t even feel comfortable using the phrase global warming. But they understand…that they have an obligation to their kids, and »

Movie Review: Seeing is believing in the wrenchingly illustrative climate doc Chasing Coral

11 July 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Scientists overwhelmingly agree that humanity’s enormous carbon footprint is potentially disastrous, but reading peer-reviewed papers with titles like “Attributing Physical And Biological Impacts To Anthropogenic Climate Change” doesn’t exactly stir the blood. Even Al Gore’s PowerPoint lecture in An Inconvenient Truth (which has a sequel forthcoming in just a few weeks), with its onslaught of facts and figures, skews a little dry. Seeking to provide a more visceral sense of the danger, documentary filmmaker Jeff Orlowski has spent much of the past decade training cameras on natural phenomena that are vanishing at an alarming rate. His first feature, 2012’s Chasing Ice, employed time-lapse photography to show the speedy disappearance of various Arctic glaciers, and was almost as visually stunning as it was disturbing. Now, Orlowski has made a sequel of sorts, Chasing Coral, which offers a similarly majestic/bleak look at the effect of rising ocean »

July 2017 Film Preview

29 June 2017 7:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Girls Trip

As “Wonder Woman” becomes the highest-grossing live action film directed by a woman, July promises to bring even more interesting, powerful women to the big screen — whether they are in front of camera or behind it. July starts with a fascinating documentary from director Lara Stolman. “Swim Team” follows swim athletes on the autism spectrum and explores how the team gives its young men a chance to feel included and in control, sometimes for the first time ever.

The second weekend in July brings a pair of noteworthy women-centric films. Netflix’s “To the Bone” is inspired by writer-director Marti Noxon’s own struggles with anorexia, and charts her unconventional road to recovery. And Shakespeare gets an update from writer Alice Birch in “Lady Macbeth,” whose titular character discovers her own power after engaging in a dangerous affair.

Things get a bit lighter on July 21, with a pair of comedies about the complex ties between women. In Gillian Robespierre’s “Landline” two sisters unexpectedly bond after discovering their father’s affair. “Girls Trip” sees four lifelong friends reconnecting at a rowdy, unforgettable weekend in New Orleans.

The month closes with a female-led action flick, and an urgent documentary sequel. Charlize Theron stars in “Atomic Blonde,” the story of an extremely talented MI6 agent who is sent to deliver a sensitive dossier to the destabilized city of Berlin. “An Inconvenient Sequel,” a follow-up to 2006’s “An Inconvenient Truth,” is a potent reminder of the imminent danger of climate change, greed, and the apathy of those in power. Co-director Bonni Cohen follows Al Gore as he makes climate change’s dangers known to the entire world — and the film is being updated to include the United States’ decision to retreat from the Paris Climate treaty.

Here are all of the women-centric, women-directed, and women-written films debuting in July. All descriptions are from press materials unless otherwise noted.

'An Inconvenient Sequel' ending to change

26 June 2017 1:26 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Participant Media confirms move ahead of July 28 release.

Producer and financier Participant Media confirmed on Monday that changes are being made to An Inconvenient Sequel before it launches through Paramount on July 28 in light of the Us withdrawal from the Paris climate accord.

Participant sources confirmed the move after directors Jon Shenk and Bonni Cohen spoke to press at the Nantucket Film Festival over the weekend, where the film screened as the closing night presentation.

While the film that screened was the same edit as the one presented in Cannes – itself a slight modification from the version that premiered in Sundance to include President Donald Trump’s assumption of office – there will be a new ending to the eco documentary.

Directors Jon Shenk and Bonni Cohen said the new version will incorporate a message of hope and address Trump’s shock withdrawal at the start of June from the global agreement on emissions levels.

7 June 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

President Donald Trump’s controversial decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement was more than “inconvenient” for the U.S. — it threatens jobs, our standing in the world — and most of all, our planet, says former Vice President Al Gore.

“This is as serious as it gets,” the longtime environmentalist tells People in this week’s issue.

“What the scientists told us 20 years ago has come true,” says Gore, who warned the world about the catastrophic effects of climate change in his 2006 Academy Award-winning documentary, An Inconvenient Truth. He is following up that documentary with An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, »

Roger Waters’ First Rock Album in 25 Years Asks a Post-Trump World: ‘Is This the Life We Really Want?’

2 June 2017 6:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When you’re speaking to Roger Waters, there is no such thing as small talk. The mind responsible for some of the most ambitious productions in pop music history is constantly crackling with activity. Even seemingly innocuous questions, sure to elicit canned responses perfected over half a century of interviews, yield eloquent run-on sentences that jolt forward like a runaway train. The destination is often impossible to predict but, like his lyrics, the words are caustic, hilarious, cynical, hopeful and warm.

As Trump Withdraws from The Paris Agreement, Al Gore Just Became the Biggest Movie Star of the Summer

2 June 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There were a lot of big movie stars making the rounds at the Cannes Film Festival, but none loomed larger than Al Gore. Attending a posh dinner for the festival’s 70th anniversary, he hobnobbed with a crowd of A-listers while receiving well-wishes from distributors and filmmakers alike. “The Beguiled” director Sofia Coppola paid her respects, as did Sony Pictures Classics co-president Michael Barker and Los Angeles Times critic Justin Chang.

And so did I. Everyone in the room felt compelled to approach Gore, thank him for his continuing efforts to save the planet, and wish him good luck on the road ahead — which has only gotten rockier with the news that President Donald Trump decided to pull out of the Paris Accord. Back then, just a few weeks ago, Gore was the loftiest figure in a very flashy room; now, he looms even larger.

Hollywood blasts Trump Paris climate deal exit

An Inconvenient Sequel team respond to Us withdrawal from Paris deal. Bob Iger resigns from White House advisory council.

Al Gore, the former Us vice-president and figurehead of the upcoming documentary An Inconvenient Sequel, David Linde, CEO of the film’s producer Participant Media, and directors Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk have lambasted Us president Donald Trump’s decision to exit the Paris climate deal.

Meanwhile Disney CEO Bob Iger tweeted he was stepping down from the President’s Strategic and Policy Forum “as a matter of principle.”

The responses came after Trump on Thursday pulled the Us out of the voluntary pact agreed in late 2015 to cap greenhouse gas emissions. Trump said the deal would damage the Us economy and added he might renegotiate a “better deal” for the country, although the validity of the latter claim was challenged by several countries.

Hollywood blasts Trump climate accord exit

1 June 2017 3:39 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Team behind An Inconvenient Sequel in impassioned response to Us withdrawal from Paris deal. Bob Iger resigns from White House advisory council.

Al Gore, the former Us vice-president and figurehead of the upcoming documentary An Inconvenient Sequel, David Linde, CEO of the film’s producer Participant Media, and directors Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk have lambasted Us president Donald Trump’s decision to exit the Paris climate deal.

Meanwhile Disney CEO Bob Iger tweeted he was stepping down from the President’s Strategic and Policy Forum “as a matter of principle.”

The responses came after Trump on Thursday pulled the Us out of the voluntary pact agreed in late 2015 to cap greenhouse gas emissions. Trump said the deal would damage the Us economy and added he might renegotiate a “better deal” for the country, although the validity of the latter claim was challenged by several countries.

Al Gore, the former Us vice-president and figurehead of the upcoming documentary An Inconvenient Sequel, David Linde, CEO of the film’s producer Participant Media, and the films’ directors Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk have responded to Us president Donald Trump’s dramatic decision to exit the Paris climate deal.

Their comments came after Trump on Thursday pulled the Us out of the voluntary pact agreed in late 2015 to cap harmful greenhouse gas emissions. Trump said the deal would damage the Us economy and added he might renegotiate a “better deal” for the country, although the validity of the latter claim was challenged by a number of countries.

Al Gore: Exit From Paris Deal Is ‘Reckless and Indefensible’

1 June 2017 1:26 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Former Vice President Al Gore said President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate deal is “reckless and indefensible.”

Gore, whose sequel to “An Inconvenient Truth” — “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” — will be released late next month, said that it would be up to states and cities and others to carry the mantle of action on climate change.

“Removing the United States from the Paris Agreement is a reckless and indefensible action,” Gore said in a statement. “It undermines America’s standing in the world and threatens to damage humanity’s ability to solve the climate crisis in time. But make no mistake: if President Trump won’t lead, the American people will.”

Summer 2017 Film Preview

26 May 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Girls Trip

By Joseph Allen and Kelsey Moore

If the movies are any indication, then we are in for one hot yet refreshing summer. Some of the season’s biggest and action-filled flicks feature powerful, female-led narratives, and goodness, do they come out in full force. The much anticipated female-led “Wonder Woman” is the first to hit summer screens, and if that’s not giving the finger to the male-dominated blockbuster, we don’t know what is.

July also has its fair share of action with Charlize Theron’s “Atomic Blonde.” This spy thriller sends Theron’s character to Berlin during the Cold War in order to save one agent whilst exposing others.

In between superheroes and spies, however, there are plenty of festival darlings and lighthearted comedies to enjoy. Marti Noxon’s “To The Bone,” which premiered at Sundance, features Lily Collins as a young woman battling anorexia. The film is based on Noxon’s own experience with an eating disorder and truthfully tackles the fine line between self-acceptance and despair. Gillian Robespierre’s “Landline” reunites Robespierre with “Obvious Child’s” Elisabeth Holm and Jenny Slate. It tackles the messiness of family, growing up, and adultery.

Girls Trip,” on the other hand, is the perfect comedy to help beat the summer heat. Featuring the talents of Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Tiffany Haddish, this ensemble film follows four friends as they rekindle both their friendships and sense of adventure during a girl’s weekend to New Orleans.

August brings a slew of socially conscious titles, including several directed by women. Kathryn Bigelow’s highly anticipated follow-up to “Zero Dark Thirty,” “Detroit,” tells the story of the 1967 Detroit riots, and speaks to our present moment, one where it feels like little has changed in the 50 years since.

“Whose Streets?,” a documentary about the Ferguson protests, speaks to “Detroit’s” continued relevance as a story of racial animus. Co-director Sabaah Folayan gives us an inside look at the protests, and takes the temperature of a community still filled with righteous anger.

Sundance breakout “Step,” directed by Amanda Lipitz, also debuts in August. The documentary chronicles the hardships of a Baltimore school’s step team during their senior year, and explains how important the team has become for the girls on it.

Here are just some of many women-centric, women-directed, and women-written films releasing this summer. Be sure to keep up with Women and Hollywood for exhaustive monthly previews!

All descriptions are from press materials unless otherwise noted.

June 2

Wonder Woman” — Directed by Patty Jenkins

Wonder Woman

Before she was Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained warrior. When a pilot crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, she leaves home to fight a war to end all wars, discovering her full powers and true destiny.

Did you know? Gal Gadot has been very adamant about the film’s feminist framework, stressing that Diana is “free of internalized sexism and any knowledge whatsoever of socialized gender roles.”

June 9

“Beatriz at Dinner”

“Beatriz at Dinner”

Beatriz (Salma Hayek), an immigrant from a poor town in Mexico, has drawn on her innate kindness to build a career as a health practitioner in Southern California. Don Strutt (John Lithgow) is a real estate developer whose cutthroat tactics have made him a self-made, self-satisfied billionaire. When these two polar opposites meet at a dinner party, their worlds collide and neither will ever be the same.

Did you know? “Beatriz at Dinner” opens this year’s Sundance Film Festival London, and certainly feels like a timely release. In fact, John Lithgow’s character reminds us of a certain real-world real estate developer who is currently inhabiting the Oval Office.

June 16

Maudie” — Directed by Aisling Walsh; Written by Sherry White

Maudie

Maudie,” based on a true story, is an unlikely romance in which the reclusive Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke) hires a fragile yet determined woman named Maudie (Sally Hawkins) to be his housekeeper. Maudie, bright-eyed but hunched with crippling arthritis, yearns to be independent, to live away from her protective family and she also yearns, passionately, to create art. Unexpectedly, they become a couple. “Maudie” charts a woman seeking her personal freedom, her unending fight to sustain it, and her surprising rise to fame as a folk painter.

Did you know? Maud Lewis was a Canadian folk artist who possessed no formal training. “Maudie” — which is currently playing in Canada — has ignited a renewed interest in her work. In fact, a painting recently found in a thrift shop just sold for $45,000, approximately three times its appraised value.

Rough Night” — Co-Written and Directed by Lucia Aniello

Rough Night

In this edgy R-rated comedy, five best friends from college (played by Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell, Ilana Glazer, and Zoë Kravitz) reunite 10 years later for a wild bachelorette weekend in Miami. Their hard partying takes a hilariously dark turn when they accidentally kill a male stripper. Amidst the craziness of trying to cover it up, they’re ultimately brought closer together when it matters most.

Did you know? Some would call this a gender-reversed redo of the late ‘90s film “Very Bad Things,” starring Christian Slater. But, let’s be honest: with this ensemble of A-listers and comedic geniuses — we’re looking at you, Kate McKinnon and Ilana Glazer — Aniello’s film is sure to bring a lot more laughs and intrigue.

June 23

The Beguiled” — Written and Directed by Sofia Coppola (Limited Release; Opens in Wider Release June 30)

The Beguiled

The Beguiled” is an atmospheric thriller from acclaimed writer/director Sofia Coppola. The story unfolds during the Civil War, at a Southern girls’ boarding school. Its sheltered women (Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning, Emma Howard, Oona Laurence, Angourie Rice, and Addison Riecke) take in an injured enemy soldier (Colin Farrell). As they provide refuge and tend to his wounds, the house is taken over with sexual tension and dangerous rivalries, and taboos are broken in an unexpected turn of events.

Did you know? Director Sofia Coppola does not consider this a remake of the 1971 film. Instead, she wanted to “tell the same story, but flip it to the women characters’ point of view” as they were the ones “cut off during that time, left behind during the war.”

July 14

To the Bone” — Written and Directed by Marti Noxon (Also Available on Netflix)

To The Bone

Ellen (Lily Collins) is an unruly, anorexic 20-year-old who spent the better part of her teenage years being shepherded through various recovery programs, only to find herself several pounds lighter every time. Determined to find a solution, her dysfunctional family agrees to send her to a group home for youths, which is led by a non-traditional doctor (Keanu Reeves). Surprised by the unusual rules — and charmed by her fellow patients — Ellen has to discover for herself how to confront her addiction and attempt self-acceptance, in order to stand a chance against her demons. (Sundance Film Institute)

Did you know? This is a deeply personal project for Noxon. As she discussed with Women and Hollywood, she, too, battled anorexia and bulimia for over 10 years. By exploring this experience in her film, Noxon aims to show just how real these diseases are and how far they are from “an issue of vanity.”

Lady Macbeth” — Written by Alice Birch (Opens in NY and La)

Lady Macbeth

Rural England, 1865. Katherine (Florence Pugh) is stifled by her loveless marriage to a bitter man twice her age (Paul Hilton), and his cold, unforgiving family. When she embarks on a passionate affair with a young worker (Cosmo Jarvis) on her husband’s estate, a force is unleashed inside her so powerful that she will stop at nothing to get what she wants.

July 21

Girls Trip” — Co-Written by Tracy Oliver, Karen Mccullah, and Erica Rivinoja

When four lifelong friends (Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Tiffany Haddish) travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival, sisterhoods are rekindled, wild sides are rediscovered, and there’s enough dancing, drinking, brawling, and romancing to make the Big Easy blush.

Did you know? Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith have not been onscreen together since 1996. Their first collaboration, “Set it Off” (also starring Vivica A. Fox and Kimberly Elise), examines the personal and financial struggles of four women who decide to start robbing banks together.

Landline” — Directed by Gillian Robespierre; Written by Gillian Robespierre and Elisabeth Holm

Landline

The Manhattan of 1995: a land without cell phones, but abundant in CD listening stations, bar smoke, and family dysfunction. Enter the Jacobs. Eldest daughter Dana’s (Jenny Slate) looming marriage to straight-laced Ben (Jay Duplass) prompts a willful dive into her wild side, while her younger sister, Ali (Abby Quinn), is still in high school but leads a covert life of sex, drugs, and clubbing. After discovering love letters penned by their father (John Turturro), the sisters try to expose his apparent affair while keeping it from their all-too-composed mother (Edie Falco). (Sundance Film Institute)

Did you know? Gillian Robespierre and Elisabeth Holm previously collaborated on critically acclaimed “Obvious Child,” which also stars Jenny Slate. As Ropespierre told Women and Hollywood, her new film explores the “female perspective of monogamy across multiple generations.”

July 28

Atomic Blonde

Atomic Blonde

The crown jewel of Her Majesty’s Secret Intelligence Service, Agent Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) is equal parts spycraft, sensuality, and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on her impossible mission. Sent alone into Berlin to deliver a priceless dossier out of the destabilized city, she partners with embedded station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.

Did you know? Charlize Theron fought for her character’s no-strings-attached, one-night stand with a female agent. After all, as Theron herself rhetorically asks, “Why is it that James Bond can sleep with every girl in every movie” and nobody questions his lack of emotional investment?

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” (Documentary) — Co-Directed by Bonni Cohen

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power

A decade after “An Inconvenient Truth” brought climate change into the heart of popular culture, comes the riveting and rousing follow-up that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution. Vice President Al Gore continues his tireless fight traveling around the world training an army of climate champions and influencing international climate policy. Cameras follow him behind the scenes — in moments both private and public, funny and poignant — as he pursues the inspirational idea that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion.

Did you know? During an interview with Women and Hollywood, Cohen explained that she wanted audiences to leave the film feeling “empowered — like change is possible and in their hands.” This thirst for change continues throughout her personal work; she is a co-founder of the Catapult Film Fund, which provides development funding and informal mentorship to documentarians.

“From the Land of the Moon” — Co-Written and Directed by Nicole Garcia

“From the Land of the Moon”

In 1950s France, Gabrielle (Marion Cotillard) is a passionate, free-spirited woman who is in a loveless marriage and falls for another man (Louis Garrel) when she is sent away to the Alps to treat an illness. Gabrielle yearns to free herself and run away with André.

Did you know? “From the Land of the Moon” was one of only three female-directed films that played in competition at last year’s Cannes Film Festival. Garcia’s work was in good company, as Andrea Arnold’s “American Honey” and Maren Ade’s “Toni Erdmann” also graced the screen. Think this year’s Cannes is any better? Check out Women and Hollywood’s infographic and festival thoughts.

Ingrid Goes West

Ingrid (Aubrey Plaza) is an unstable young woman with a checkered past of obsessive behavior. She secretly moves to Los Angeles to get close to Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen) — an Instagram “lifestyle guru” with a fabulous artist boyfriend, a camera-ready terrier, and an array of new products and brands to promote to her followers. After Ingrid adopts a Taylor-made identity for herself, her machinations to prove she’s Bff material for her Insta idol are underway — that is, until she meets Taylor’s obnoxious brother Nicky (Billy Magnussen), who threatens to tear down her façade.

“Whose Streets?” (Documentary) — Co-Directed by Sabaah Folayan

“Whose Streets?”

The activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice bring you “Whose Streets?” — a documentary about the Ferguson uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and then left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis County. Grief, long-standing tension, and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy. In the days that follow, artists, musicians, teachers, and parents turn into freedom fighters, standing on the front lines to demand justice. As the National Guard descends on Ferguson, a small suburb of St. Louis, with military grade weaponry, these young community members become torchbearers of a new wave of resistance.

Did you know? As Sabaah Folayan told Women and Hollywood, “Whose Streets?” exists to “honor those who put their lives and livelihoods on the line to fight for our constitutional rights.”

August 18

“Patti Cake$”

“Patti Cake$”

In a coming-of-age story straight out of Jersey, an unlikely rapper (Danielle Macdonald) finds her voice as a one-of-a-kind hip-hop legend in the making in “Patti Cake$,” the first feature film from acclaimed commercial and music video director Geremy Jasper. Set in gritty strip-mall suburbia, “Patti Cake$” chronicles an underdog’s quest for fame and glory with humor, raw energy, and some unforgettable beats.

Did you know? The film has been compared to “8 Mile” and “Hustle & Flow,” but it’s a departure from these films because its central figure is a woman. “Patti Cake$” examines the barriers women face in entering the world of hip hop. At the same time, it questions whether its central figure is appropriating black culture.

August 25

“The Unknown Girl”

“The Unknown Girl”

Dr. Jenny Davin (Adèle Haenel) runs a busy bare-bones medical clinic on the outskirts of Liege. Late one night, hours past closing time, Jenny ignores a buzz at the clinic’s door. The next morning she learns that this buzz came from a young woman in need of help, and that this unidentified caller is now dead. Weighed down by guilt and the thought of an unknown girl in an unmarked grave, Jenny applies her methodical, diagnostic mind to the case, making it her mission to find out who this woman was, and who, or what, was responsible for her death. (Toronto International Film Festival)

Did you know? The film’s directors, the Dardenne brothers, initially wanted to cast Marion Cottilard in the role, but ended up casting her in the Oscar-nominated “Two Days, One Night” instead.
