THE EVENT: The East Coast premiere of Al Gore's
feature length multimedia slide show assembled
by and starring himself. With the help of director
Davis Guggenheim, the fi lm presents the latest
scientifi c evidence of carbon dioxide leading to
global warming and catastrophic sea level rises.
THE SCENE: The premiere seemed as much a
political homecoming as it was an opportunity for
Gore's Washington buddies to view his signature
work. Applause was heavy throughout the fi lm,
and Gore continued to receive praise over a glass
(or two) of red wine at the post-fi lm cocktail party.
THE GUESTS: Recording Artist Moby, producer
Lawrence Bender, Tipper Gore, Lynda Carter,
Democratic Sens. Harry Reid and Christopher
Dodd, Valerie Plame and Queen Noor.
