Before the Flood

November 15, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Leonardo DiCaprio shares his two-year journey exploring climate change and its effects around the world in this film, featuring Barak Obama, Elon Musk, Bill Clinton, and John Kerry. As DiCaprio said so eloquently as he addressed the opening of the Signature Ceremony for the Paris Agreement, “We know that climate change is happening faster than even the most pessimistic of scientists warned us decades ago. It has become a runaway freight train bringing with it an impending disaster for all living things.

“Now think about the shame that each of us will carry when our children and grandchildren look back and realize that we had the means of stopping this devastation, but simply lacked the political will to do so. Our planet cannot be saved unless we leave fossil fuels in the ground where they belong. An upheaval and massive change is required, now—one that leads to a new collective consciousness, a new collective evolution of the human race, inspired and enabled by a sense of urgency from all of you.”
