Before the Flood, Leonardo DiCaprio’s new feature length climate documentary, premieres on the National Geographic Channel on October 30th at 9pm EST...

So first things first, go to your DVR or cable app and set a recording. Since it’s airing in 171 countries in 45 languages, and also streaming on Netflix and Hulu and elsewhere, you really can’t — and shouldn’t — miss it.

Check out the trailer:


From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Fisher Stevens and Academy Award-winning actor, and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio, BEFORE THE FLOOD presents a riveting account of the dramatic changes now occurring around the world due to climate change. BEFORE THE FLOOD will be in theaters in NYC and LA starting October 21, and air globally on the National Geographic Channel starting October 30.

Now, I haven't seen the film yet either so I'm just as eager to see what it's actually going to look like as any of you. But based on how ‘Before The Flood’ combines Leonardo DiCaprio's world-famous talent and passion for climate change action with Fisher Stevens’ formidable cinematic skills, it can only be great.

Directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Fisher Stevens, Before the Flood chronicles the impacts of climate change and what we must do immediately to confront the challenges, with a heavy focus on solutions — and accountability for climate deniers.

As anyone familiar with DiCaprio’s strong stance on climate justice and his role as U.N. Messenger of Peace on climate knows, the emphasis will focus on urgent action and a rapid and just transition from fossil fuels to clean energy. 

Based on the trailer, there's stunning footage of mountaintop removal coal mining, the Alberta tar sands, calving glaciers, destroyed rainforests and more evidence of human influence and suffering. And there's less stunning but equally important footage and interviews about the delayed policy action wrought by climate science denial and industry-funded misinformation.

So tune in on Sunday — and consider taking action right now to ensure everyone sees this important documentary.
