iW NEWS | Participant Backing Live Earth Doc

Brian Hill‘s Century Films and Katie Bailiff will produce a feature-length documentary from Participant Productions inspired by the upcoming Live Earth concert event taking place July 7, 2007. Backed by producer Kevin Wall and Al Gore, the Live Earth concert will take place at venues around the world this Saturday. “Jeff Skoll and Participant always believed in the message of ‘An Inconvenient Truth‘, long before it was fashionable to do so,” said Gore in a statement, referencing his Oscar-winning doc that was produced by Participant. “I’m thrilled to be working with them again in this new effort to focus attention on climate crisis.” Clarifying that the project is not a concert film, Brian Hill noted in a statement that the film will record what people around the world are doing to end global warming.
