The trailer for the upcoming documentary which is produced and narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio is here! Before the Flood will premiere next month in theaters and a week later (or more) it will globally air on TV. Also, this documentary (nor the trailer) is not for the faint-hearted.
DiCaprio says that he wants to know how far we’ve gone and if there’s any way we can stop it, regarding the pollution and nature damaging that has been going on for years. He adds that we have known about this problem for decades, and the most worrying thing is that it’s getting worse.
The trailer consists in shocking scenes of raging floods, awful pollution, glaciers melting into the sea and polar bears who desperately struggle for survival. DiCaprio travels the world and talks to various people, from activists to politicians and scientists, including Pope Francis. He also chats with President Obama and John Kerry about this delicate topic. DiCaprio mentions that the US has been the country that emitted most greenhouse gases ever in history. The film also says that half of the people who are currently in office don’t think climate change truly exists.
The director of Before the Flood is Fisher Stevens, who back in 2010 won the Documentary Feature Oscar for The Cove. The upcoming documentary has been penned, just like Cove by the same Mark Monroe. The film is presented by RatPac Documentary Films and National Geographic and it is produced by Appian Way.
Starting with October 21, it will un in Los Angeles in order to qualify for the Oscars and then in New York City. After nine days, National Geographic Channel will broadcast it in 171 countries and in 45 languages. The executive producer here is Martin Scorsese, which guarantees it’s going to be an awesome production!
