Sundance Film Festival

And finally, we leave you with a note from The 5 Min. Forecast ’s Addison Wiggin, reporting
from the Sundance Film Festival:

“During one of our screenings at the Prospector Square Theatre here in Park City, we had the
pleasure of talking with Mary Milliken, Reuters L.A. Bureau chief. She understood our project to a
T… ‘I.O.U.S.A. , based on the book Empire of Debt ,’ she then wrote in an article about the movie,
‘may be to the U.S. economy what An Inconvenient Truth was to the environment. The Oscar-
winning documentary premiered two years ago at Sundance, the top venue for independent film
and documentaries.

“‘In An Inconvenient Truth , former Vice President Al Gore offered his touring slideshow on global
warming and made a compelling case for people to push their politicians to pass legislation to help
clean the environment.’”
