The Meaningful Movies series will screen “Before the Flood,” a 2016 documentary that has yet to be released in theaters, Oct. 14 in Gig Harbor.
“Before the Flood” was produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, Fisher Stevens and National Geographic.
The documentary puts the environmental threats to the planet on center stage as the actor and activist takes viewers around the globe to highlight the perils of a warming planet.
DiCaprio travels to Alberta, Canada to see its toxic tar sands. He witnesses the frequently flooded streets of Miami Beach, Florida. He visits Beijing, a city shrouded by a constant cloak of smog. DiCaprio also explores Indonesia, a country scorched by forest fires caused by unsustainable palm oil development.
Never miss a local story.
The film features a roster of environmental champions as guest stars, including Tesla CEO and inventor Elon Musk, meteorologist and astronaut Piers Sellers, activist and environmentalist Sunita Narain and President Barack Obama.
The movie starts at 7 p.m. at Angus Dei Lutheran Church, 10511 Peacock Hill Ave NW, Gig Harbor. Admission is free but donations will be accepted.
