«Before the Flood» is a documentary about climate change directed by Fisher Stevens and narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio. It has just debuted (October 30, 2016) on the National Geographic Channel and is widely available free of charge.
Leonardo DiCaprio is not only an Oscar-winning actor but an environmental activist as well. He has made his foundation to promote environmental awareness being 24 years old back in 1998. In 2014, he was appointed as a United Nations representative on climate change, he also spoke to the members signing the Paris Climate Change Agreement. To create this movie, Leonardo DiCaprio and Fisher Stevens have been travelling for 3 years to watch what's happening on the planet and to discuss it with famous leaders such as Barack Obama and John Kerry, Pope Francis, inventor and business magnate Elon Musk, global sustainability issues scientist Johan Rockström.
That's how DiCaprio introduced the film:
«We went to every corner of the globe to document the devastating impacts of climate change and questioned humanity's ability to reverse what may be the most catastrophic problem mankind has ever faced. There was a lot to take on. All that we witnessed on this journey shows us that our world's climate is incredibly interconnected and that it is at urgent breaking point. [..] We wanted to create a film that gave people a sense of urgency, that made them understand what particular things are going to solve this problem. We bring up the issue of a carbon tax, for example, which I haven't seen in a lot of documentaries. Basically, sway a capitalist economy to try to invest in renewables, to bring less money and subsidies out of oil companies. These are the things that are really going to make a massive difference.»
We will show the movie in our yoga hall via projector. During this screening, we will also provide tea and some snacks.
