Before the Flood (2016)

February 14, 2017 at 6:30 pm in 26-100

This epic documentary follows Leonardo DiCaprio as he travels the world to examine firsthand the effects of climate change, and to learn more about possible ways to prevent catastrophic damage that could make the Earth unsustainable for human life. During his journey, he speaks with such influential figures as President Barack Obama, Pope Francis and tech innovator Elon Musk, and makes a speech before the United Nations calling for greater action on this issue. []

An issue doc that brazenly and effectively trades on its central figure's stardom to agitate for action on a topic that has become a political hot potato.
