Influence with Damian Bradfield


Davis Guggenheim on What Makes a Story Worth Telling

Season 3, Ep. 16

On this episode, Damian talks with the acclaimed director and founder of Concordia Studio, Davis Guggenheim. Davis shares the story of how he turned Al Gore’s dry slide deck about global warming into an Academy Award-winning film that transformed the public’s understanding of climate change with his documentary An Inconvenient Truth (2006). He also explains the ingredients of a good documentary, breaks down how they’re realized in his films about Malala and U2, and talks about how storytelling, when done right, has the power to unite us.
