Par tells the ‘Truth’

Gore pic gets filmmakers talking

HOLLYWOOD — As something of a perfect union between doing good and making movies, Tuesday’s DGA premiere of global warming docu “An Inconvenient Truth” had filmmakers glad to be in the business.

Producer Lawrence Bender said he’d heard former VP Al Gore speak on the subject, and “when you see his presentation you walk out thinking ‘What can I do?’ And what I do is make movies.”

Par topper Brad Grey said one of his “mandates was to make a specialty division that makes (a) difference” and this film had Gore explaining the science behind global warming “in such a common-sense manner — so clear and precise — I found it startling.”
