If you could know the truth about the threat of climate change — would you want to know? Before the Flood, presented by National Geographic, features Leonardo DiCaprio on a journey as a United Nations Messenger of Peace, traveling to five continents and the Arctic to witness climate change firsthand. He goes on expeditions with scientists uncovering the reality of climate change and meets with political leaders fighting against inaction.

With unprecedented access to thought leaders around the world, DiCaprio searches for hope in a rising tide of catastrophic news.
This movie is free and will be shown at the Apollo Theater in Oberlin. All are welcome.
