Climate change documentary starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Directed by Oscar-winning actor-documentarian Fisher Stevens (The Cove), produced by Martin Scorcese and scored by Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails).

"From the toxic tar sands of Alberta to the frequently flooded streets of Miami Beach, from the smog-choked avenues of Beijing to the incinerated forests of Indonesia, DiCaprio meets with scientists, politicians, and activists to face the facts: natural disasters are becoming more frequent, wildlife is vanishing, communities are being destroyed. What is to be done?" (Toronto International Film Festival)

Before the Flood isn't simply interested in showing how terrible everything is. It also does a fantastic job of highlighting solutions for climate change, both short-term and long-term.
