Leonardo Di Caprio New Documentary: Before the flood
”Climate change is happening and it is changing people’s life worldwide”
This is the biggest issue Leonardo Di Caprio utters at Before the Flood Film Documentary. He wants to show the world how can we change this situation even if there is not hope some times.
Directed by Oscar-winning Fisher Stevens and produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, Before the flood is not just a documentary.
DiCaprio himself is in nearly every scene. Speaking with some of the world’s top powerful people to do something about climate change. He goes from President Obama to Pope Francis.
DiCaprio travels the globe to show how other countries are experiencing the effects of climate change. For instance, how Greenland’s melting ice is becoming a heat creator instead of reflector.
We can also watch other different kind of issues such as pollution or coal production.
According to film critic Adam Chitwood the main factor that makes it impossible to solve these issues is money: ”Amongst these growing issues, everyone is turning to the U.S. to be an example across the globe, as money continues to be a deciding factor that’s dividing our politicians and making widespread change impossible” .
This fantastic and enthralling documentary shows Climate change is real. It’s something every country should be involved in fighting.
Before the Flood gives a different point of view and its aim is encouraging and inciting people to take some action.
You may be wondering why Leonardo DiCaprio got involved in this kind of documentary. However it’s not the first time we see the actor in this kind of film. He has worked as executive producer in animal food based production documentary Cowspiracy. He has turned into a powerful advocate spreading an important message.
