From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Fisher Stevens and Academy Award®-winning actor 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 individuals and society as a whole can take to prevent catastrophic disruption of life on Earth. The film follows DiCaprio as he travels to five continents and the Arctic to talk with scientists, world leaders, activists, and residents to gain a deeper understanding of this complex issue and investigate concrete solutions to the most pressing environmental challenge of our time.

DiCaprio is a longtime environmentalist who was designated in 2014 as a United Nations Messenger of Peace with a special focus on climate change by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

Ban appears in Before the Flood as does President Barack Obama, former President Bill Clinton, Secretary of State John Kerry, entrepreneur Elon Musk, and Pope Francis.
