Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival
BLOCK 2: OPENING NIGHT FEATURE – Before the Flood
BEFORE THE FLOOD
FISHER STEVENS | USA | 96 MIN
Academy Award®-winning actor, environmental activist and U.N. Messenger of Peace Leonardo DiCaprio and Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Fisher Stevens travel to five continents and the Arctic to witness climate change firsthand. DiCaprio 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.
Post-Screening Discussion with Director Fisher Stevens moderated by film critic Carrie Rickey. Stevens will accept the Festival’s first Environmental Advocacy Award, presented by founding sponsor The Nature Conservancy.
