Lawrence Bender Produces Sequel to Award-Winning Documentary

In 2006, Lawrence Bender was part of the team that produced one of the most award-winning documentaries in history. Mr. Bender’s team, produced “An Inconvenient Truth” which featured former Vice-President Al Gore explaining to the audience the dangers of global climate change. This film would go on to win several Oscars at the Academy Awards presentation.

“An Inconvenient Truth” is just one of the many highly-rated films that Lawrence Bender has been associated with over the years. Mr. Bender didn’t set out to become a movie producer. He studied civil engineering, and he even considered a career in dance before that career was derailed by injury.

When he did set his sights on a career in the movies, Mr. Bender went from one success to the next producing a number of acclaimed films. In recent years, he has been associated with projects such as “Django”, “Kill Bill”, “88 Minutes” and “Countdown to Zero”

Lawrence Bender set out in 2017 to once again be part of the team helping Al Gore get his message about global climate change to the masses. Mr. Bender signed on as executive producer of “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power”.

This film once again features Al Gore speaking passionately about how pollution is causing catastrophic and irreversible changes within the environment. He gives updates on some of the topics that he addressed in the first documentary ten years ago. As part of the film, the former vice-president goes on location to places such as the Greenland ice shelves to see firsthand how climate change is affecting them.

This film was debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, and it was an audience favorite. While not achieving the box office heights of its predecessor, this sequel grossed more than its budget.

“An Inconvenient Sequel” turned out to be another acclaimed film for Lawrence Bender. This film was nominated for the Best Documentary Award at the British version of the Academy Awards. The film did win a Critic’s Choice Award, and it received the prize in its category at the Biografilm Festival in 2017.
