Review by Rachel Avalon
Before the Flood looks at climate change from a global perspective as Leonardo DiCaprio travels the world to interview scientists, innovators, politicians, conservationists, religious leaders, and activists. The message of the film is beyond clear and persuasive; now is the time for all of humanity to come together to heal the planet and help ensure that Earth remains habitable for humans and millions of other species. Will we have enough collective willpower? As a longtime environmental activist myself, there is something bittersweet about the power of this documentary and its pendulum swing between hope and catastrophe. After all, DiCaprio used his celebrity platform nearly a decade earlier to demonstrate the urgency of the climate crisis in The 11th Hour. Hopefully, enough people will be motivated to join the cause now.
