NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The William F. Laman Public Library System of North Little Rock announced today that its documentary film series, "Movie Mondays," will continue in April with "An Inconvenient Truth."

From director Davis Guggenheim, "An Inconvenient Truth" is a passionate and inspirational look at former Vice President Al Gore's fervent crusade to halt global warming's deadly progress by exposing the myths and misconceptions that surround it. In this intimate portrait of Gore and his "travelling global warming show," Gore comes across as never before in the media - funny, engaging, open and intent on alerting citizens to this "planetary emergency" before it's too late.

After having its U.S. debut at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival and international premiere at Cannes, "An Inconvenient Truth" opened to rave reviews and enthusiastic audiences everywhere. A smash hit, the film went on to win Academy Awards for Best Documentary feature and Best Song. It also became a global phenomenon, one of the highest grossing documentaries of all time with a worldwide audience estimated at 5 million people.

The event, which will occur on Monday, April 11, will be held at 6 p.m. in the auditorium at Laman's main library at 2801 Orange St., North Little Rock. Laman recently installed state-of-the-art audio visual equipment, including a 10 by 14-foot screen and 12-speaker, digital surround sound.

Other scheduled movies can be accessed on Laman Library's award-winning new website at http://www.lamanlibrary.org/. The event, like all programs at Laman Library, is free and open to the public.
