Before The Flood

A Movie that Will Move You:
Join us for a screening of Before The Flood

As we watch the presidential cabinet fill with representatives of the fossil fuel industry and climate deniers, it is important for we the people to maintain a grounding in sound science and activism.  To this end, on Thursday January 5, 2017, 7 PM at the Cape Ann Cinema, the leaders from our environmental breakout session organized a screening to show excerpts from Fisher Stevens and Leonardo DiCaprio’s new film, Before The Flood.  This epic documentary follows DiCaprio as he explores the dramatic and destructive changes that climate warming has brought to our planet, looks, unflinchingly into the future, and explores the changes required by governments, industry, and people if we are to survive.
“Try to have a conversation with anyone about climate change, and people just tune out. And the problem seems to be getting worse, and worse, and worse,” DiCaprio’s voice-over takes us into the crux of the film.  However, it is our voices that will lead us out as viewers become participants: responding to what we are seeing, learning about organizations on the North Shore galvanized to address these issues, and generating our own ideas on how each of us can stand in the path of climate warming and reclaim our planet.
Host: NorthShore 350, Citizens Climate Lobby and Action Together North Shore, MA: our new North Shore Environmental Coalition

We hope to see you there!
