Before the Flood
A fearless Leonardo DiCaprio dons his environmental superhero cape & travels the world, in this brave, epic documentary in the vein of An Inconvenient Truth, as he investigates first hand the global causes & effects of climate change, meeting those endeavouring to avert potentially catastrophic damage to the planet.
DiCaprio’s staggering journey takes him from meetings with key figures such as Elon Musk, Pope Francis & Barack Obama, to delivering an impassioned speech directly before the United Nations, reporting his findings and calling for greater, more urgent action. A riveting film and account of this quest to change the world, Before The Flood is full of humility and passion, whilst frankly & clearly dealing with the very real issues facing our environment’s long term future.
