6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power director, Bonni Cohen, will be Tom Needham’s special guest this Thursday at 6 P.M. on WUSB’s The Sounds of Film.

It is ten years after Al Gore’s film, An Inconvenient Truth, won an Academy Award for Best Documentary. The original documentary is regularly credited with bringing climate change to the forefront of popular culture. Now, a decade later, Al Gore has returned to continue his fight to educate a new generation about the dangers of climate change. In his new film, directors Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk, follow Al Gore as he travels the globe speaking to audiences, local politicians, business titans and world leaders. An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power shows the startling new evidence illustrating the horrifying effects of climate change, and offers inspiring stories of people working together to find solutions to this crisis.

Bonni Cohen is an celebrated documentary producer and director. She is most well-known for her films Rape of Europa, the story of how Nazi Germany plundered Europe’s great works of art, and Audrie & Daisy, which looks at the effects that online bullying has on the lives of teenagers.

WUSB Sunday Street Series: Slaid Cleaves

Austin-based singer/songwriter in WUSB's Sunday Street Series at The Long Island Museum, Stony Brook, New York

Saturday, October 21st, 7 P.M.

This is Slaid's only area appearance on his current US tour. Hel'' be accompanied by mandolin and fiddle player, Chojo Jacques.

Slaid Cleaves’ self-penned biography simply says: "Grew up in Maine. Lives in Texas. Writes songs. Makes Records. Travels around. Tries to be good." A busy tour schedule, fueled by an engaging stage personality, have won Cleaves a devoted fan base which includes novelist Stephen King, who wrote the liner notes to Cleaves' album, Everything You Love Will Be Taken Away.

Slaid gained national attention with his 1997 recording, No Angel Knows, produced by the legendary Gurf Morlix. Cleaves’ follow up album, Broke Down, brought him national airplay with the title song (a co-write with Rod Picott) and “One Good Year,” a Cleaves/Steve Brooks co-write. Six albums later, Slaid Cleaves continues to write powerful songs as evidenced by his brand new album, Ghost On The Car Radio. (www.slaidcleaves.com)

Advance sale tickets: $25 at www.sundaystreet.org through Friday, October 20th. Tickets at the door on the day of the show are $30 (cash only)
