‘A GLOBAL WARNING!’
Posted on: January, 2009
Humanity is sitting on a ticking time bomb. If the vast majority of the world's scientists are right, we have just ten years to avert a major catastrophe that could send our entire planet into a tail-spin of epic destruction involving extreme weather, floods, droughts, epidemics and killer heat waves beyond anything we have ever experienced.
If that sounds like a recipe for serious gloom and doom -- think again. BIG Home Video, in association with Paramount Home Entertainment Global brings to you a truly magnificent film – An Inconvenient Truth - on home video. Winner of two Oscars, the film offers a passionate and inspirational look at former US Vice President Al Gore’s fervent crusade to halt global warming's deadly progress in its tracks by exposing the myths and misconceptions that surround it. In this eye-opening and poignant film, Gore is funny, engaging, open and downright on fire about getting the surprisingly stirring truth about what he calls our "planetary emergency" out to ordinary citizens before it's too late.
With incidents like the recent floods in Bihar, and the 2006 rain storm in Mumbai, it seems we may be reaching a tipping point - and Gore pulls no punches in explaining the dire situation. With wit, smarts and hope, An Inconvenient Truth ultimately brings home Gore's persuasive argument that we can no longer afford to view global warming as a political issue - rather, it is the biggest moral challenges facing our global civilization.
An Inconvenient Truth won 2 Oscars - for Best Documentary and for Best Achievement in Music written for motion pictures. Special features in the DVD pack include an update with Al Gore, the making of the movie, “I need to wake up” Music Video by Melissa Etheridge, Commentary with Director Davis Guggenheim and with producers of the movie. The DVD pack has been priced at Rs. 499/-. To take the message to the grass-root level, BIG Home Video has also released a Hindi Dub of the film, on VCD format, at Rs. 69 /-
The film has been raved by critics:
“Virtually everyone who sees this movie will be galvanized to do something about global warming -- and everyone should see this movie” Mick LaSalle – San Francisco Chronicle.
“In 39 years, I have never written these words in a movie review, but here they are. You owe it to yourself to see this film.” Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
Kulmeet Makkar, Chief Executive Officer, BIG Music and Home Entertainment says, “Fascinating and startling, An Inconvenient Truth is one of the most important films of our time, and a must-watch for all!” He further adds that BIG Home Video not only offers blockbusters like The Dark Knight and Kung Fu Panda but also meaningful movies like the The Kite Runner and 11th Hour.
