Welcome to join UF for free film screening:
“Before the Flood” is a 2016 documentary film about climate change directed by Fisher Stevens. The film was produced in a collaboration between Stevens, Leonardo DiCaprio, James Packer, Brett Ratner, Trevor Davidoski, and Jennifer Davisson Killoran.
At the European premiere in London in October 2016, DiCaprio introduced the film as follows: “Before The Flood is the product of an incredible three-year journey that took place with my co-creator and director Fisher Stevens. We went to every corner of the globe to document the devastating impacts of climate change and questioned humanity’s ability to reverse what may be the most catastrophic problem mankind has ever faced. There was a lot to take on. All that we witnessed on this journey shows us that our world’s climate is incredibly interconnected and that it is at urgent breaking point.(…)We wanted to create a film that gave people a sense of urgency, that made them understand what particular things are going to solve this problem.”
The subtitles will be in Swedish.
