before the flood

Last night, I watched the documentary Before the Flood with Leonardo DiCaprio. It was a moving film with many vital visuals. The documentary followed a timeline of Leo’s involvement in the environmental movement; this made it easy to connect to as it explained the basics of the issue at hand. The premise of the documentary was showing the catastrophic issues that will occur once the glaciers melt and the water level continues to rise. Island nations that have resided for centuries will be forced to move, Miami is going to undergo major infrastructural changes, and the problem will eventually reach New York City as well. Overall, I rate this documentary an A+ and suggest it as a primary film for people just entering the concern over climate change.
