Synopsis:

Before the Flood, presented by National Geographic, features Leonardo DiCaprio on a journey as a United Nations Messenger of Peace, traveling to five continents and the Arctic to witness climate change firsthand. He goes on expeditions with scientists uncovering the reality of climate change and meets with political leaders fighting against inaction. He also discovers a calculated disinformation campaign orchestrated by powerful special interests working to confuse the public about the urgency of the growing climate crisis. With unprecedented access to thought leaders around the world, DiCaprio searches for hope in a rising tide of catastrophic news.

 

“exceptionally-made feature and quite simply a diamond … essential viewing.”
--Dean Pettipher, UK Film Review

 

"Leonardo DiCaprio's abashed personal journey to learn about global warming, overcome his pessimism, and find hope that there's still time to make a difference. "

--MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher

 

“A serious, substantial piece of work.”

-- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
