Before the Flood is an epic documentary two-years in the making as we follow Leonardo DiCaprio’s quest on the effects of climate change around the world.
Before the Flood is a very solemn film about the man-made effects climate change rapidly hurting our planet. Although, the documentary may not cover new ground, nevertheless, Leo’s message of urgency is one that every human should hear. Director Fisher Stevens (Crazy Love) coherently layers scientific evidence with facts throughout the 96-minute film.
On and off the film set of The Revenant, DiCaprio travels the world to examine firsthand the effects of climate change, while also learning how to prevent catastrophic damage that could make the Earth unsustainable for human life. During Leo’s journey, he speaks with leaders such as President Barack Obama, Pope Francis and Elon Musk. DiCaprio also makes a speech before the United Nations as he calls for greater action on this pressing issue.
Before the Flood is a compelling as it is important for the sake of our planet. Viewers will take it or leave it before the film even begins, but for the sake of our environment try to watch with an open mind. You can watch the full-feature documentary right here or on YouTube by National Geographic.
