Leonardo DiCaprio is one of Hollywood’s most committed environmentalists, and his dedication to raising awareness about climate change — and the individual and global efforts required to halt its acceleration — is reconfirmed by his new documentary, Before the Flood, produced by National Geographic and directed by Fisher Stevens. To make the non-fiction work as widely available as possible, National Geographic released it online on Oct. 30, for free, via a variety of Internet services, including Natgeotv.com, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, iTunes, Hulu, GooglePlay, and VOD. But that initial run is coming to end at midnight tonight (Nov. 8), so moviegoers interested in seeing the film need to get streaming — today.
As DiCaprio revealed in an Instagram video about the film,Before the Flood was a three-year passion project, and he hoped its free debut on numerous platforms would put it in front of lots of eyes and get discussions started right away.
As DiCaprio says in the above clip, “climate change is an issue that affects all of us, so please tune in and spread the word.” If you want to heed the Hollywood star’s environmentalist call, you can check out Before the Flood on any of the aforementioned sites — or watch right here right now via YouTube:
