7:00pm Free Screening of Before the Flood with discussion following
From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Fisher Stevens and Academy Award-winning actor, environmental activist and U.N. Messenger of Peace Leonardo DiCaprio, Before the Flood presents a riveting account of the dramatic changes now occurring around the world due to climate change, as well as the actions we as individuals and as a society can take to prevent catastrophic disruption of life on our planet. The film follows Leonardo DiCaprio as he travels to five continents and the Arctic speaking to scientists, world leaders, activists and local residents to gain deeper understanding of this complex issue and investigate concrete solutions to the most pressing environmental challenge of our time.
“From India to Florida to China, we met people whose lives were upended by the devastating impacts of our changing climate, including some from the most vulnerable communities on Earth.
"But we also learned that we already have the solutions we need to address this crisis. You and I both know that we do not have the luxury of time – 2015 was the warmest year on record and 2016 is on track to claim this title. I hope this film will inspire and encourage you, your family and your community do even more to cut emissions, act on climate, and lead the effort to be stewards of our shared planet.”
