One of the most impactful documentaries ever made on climate change, Before the Flood is here and it is being streamed free for a global audience, so that its messages reaches every nook and corner! And the message is clear: Climate Change is a real phenomenon (incase you still had doubts!) and is happening right now. The time has come for every individual who cares about our Earth and its future generations, to take a proactive stance and help reduce the carbon footprint by adopting a sustainable lifestyle.
The movie captures a three-year personal journey alongside Academy Award-winning actor and U.N. Messenger of Peace, Leonardo DiCaprio as he interviews individuals from every facet of society in both developing and developed nations who provide unique, impassioned and pragmatic views on what must be done today and in the future to prevent catastrophic disruption of life on our planet.
Watch the documentary below:
“I’ve been incredibly moved by so many climate change documentaries in the past, but I never felt that I saw one that articulated the science clearly to the public,” said Leonardo DiCaprio before a screening in London.
“I think people grasp it, but it seems something distant, far off, intangible and almost otherworldly. An individual doesn’t feel like they can make an impact. The journey for me was to try and make a modern-day film about climate change. I’ve been studying this issue for the past 15 years, I’ve been watching it very closely. What’s incredibly terrifying is that things are happening way ahead of the scientific projections, 15 or 20 years ago.”
