I still spend a lot of time at home these days. .. At home, I often say, “Let’s watch a movie.” Therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to recommend three documentary films that are suitable for thinking about environmental issues.
“An Inconvenient Truth” published in 2006.
Former Vice President of the United States Al Gore emphasizes the importance of tackling environmental issues based on the content of his slide lecture using graphs and videos. Al Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize for this film and his lecture activities.
“Before the Flood” released in 2016.
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio. DiCaprio spent two years serving as the United Nations Peace Ambassador, a documentary about the changes in the earth from the perspective of climate change and the danger of extinction of living things.
Don’t miss DiCaprio giving a speech at the United Nations about what he saw and experienced for two years.
“An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” released in 2017.
A documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” that predicts the future of the earth and humankind. This work was a huge hit and won the 79th Academy Award for Best Documentary and Song. And its sequel, “An Inconvenient Truth 2: Abandoned Earth,” was released in 2017. About 10 years have passed since the previous work, but climate change has exacerbated the climate crisis and problems. However, when he came to Japan, Al Gore said:
“The word” crisis “, which means” crisis “in English, has a strong meaning of” danger, “but the” opportunity “part of the word” crisis “in Japanese means” opportunity, “or” chance. ” This “climate crisis,” which I argue in the “inconvenient truth,” is the most dangerous thing humanity faces, but it also includes many “opportunities” for us to act. I want you to be a part of the solution to this “crisis” with your will. “
