I doubt that there’s today a more highly respected name where nature documentaries are concerned than Sir David Attenborough. At least not in the United Kingdom. Following the success of Blue Planet (2001), Attenborough returns for a second dive into the powerful, unforgiving, yet beautiful and compelling ocean to give us access to the greatest and least known parts of our planet…

Watching this trailer really makes me wish that I were less of a wuss when it comes to underwater creatures. Thank goodness that I live in a time when I don’t actually have to go diving to know whats beneath the surface. I’ll be tuning in because Attenborough is brilliant, as are the stunning images in this trailer.

The documentary that brought climate change to the forefront, An Inconvenient Truth (2006) has a brand new sequel. Directed by Bonni Cohen plus Jon Shenk and starring Al Gore, An Inconvenient Sequel is here to show us how close we really are to an energy revolution…

I actually haven’t yet seen An Inconvenient Truth, but just like one of my favourite recently watched documentaries about Zionism and the Israel / Palestine conflict, Colliding Dreams (2015), the title is perfection, no?

An Inconvenient Sequel Release Dates: June 15th, 2017 (GER); July 28th, 2017 (US)…

BEFORE THE FLOOD (2016): A Worthy Addition To Leonardo DiCaprio’s Filmography

As I started to watch Before The FloodLeonardo DiCaprio’s climate change documentary, it took me a few seconds to adjust to the fact that the DiCaprio was talking to me and as himself; not as an character in one of his many well received Hollywood movies. The good news is that I did eventually get myself together in time to learn some surprising truths about global warming. For example, without dropping any spoilers, the unexpected way certain parts of the planet will be impacted as climate change continues and greater action isn’t taken to fight it.

Through conversations that DiCaprio has with several knowledgeable people in the field, Before The Flood shows us the damage we have done and continue to do to our planet. We get to see precisely where we’re headed as a result and are exposed to the harsh realities of why the people with the power have continued to ignore what is happening.

Thanks to the hardwork of many who understand climate change to be a real issue, everything is not all doom and gloom. For example, business magnate, investor, engineer, and inventor Elon Musk; NASA astronaut Dr. Piers Sellers; Professor of Economics at Harvard University, Gregory Mankiw and many more including ordinary people around the world are dedicated to the cause.

Not that I needed more reasons to appreciate DiCaprio’s work but it’s hard not to admire a person so passionate about a cause which impacts all of us. It’s particularly great to see that understanding his own position, he does what he can to affect positive change. Before The Flood is a worthy documentary and my favourite moment is DiCaprio’s entire conversation towards the end with Dr. Piers Sellers. When you see, you’ll understand.

In conclusion, I recommend, I recommend, I recommend.

BEFORE THE FLOOD (2016): New Trailer For Leonardo DiCaprio Climate Change Documentary

Before The Flood is the Leonardo DiCaprio executive produced and narrated documentary about climate change, endangered species, ecosystems and native communities around the world…

Though not a drama, thriller or an action movie, as a lifelong appreciator of DiCaprio’s work, there is no question I’ll be tuning in with enthusiasm.

I’m also hoping to learn a few things that perhaps other similar documentaries haven’t covered in quite the same way.

Tomorrow is the result of the action that actress Mélanie Laurent and journalist / NGO director Cyril Dion decided to take, after learning about the very real challenges humanity will be facing in the not too distant future, thanks to climate change…

I’m curious to learn about Laurent and Dion’s  specific perspectives and how what they came to know has inspired them to take action; specifically to shine a light on all the people doing great things and suggesting solutions for the future of our planet.
