The movie “Before the Flood” presents the catastrophic effects of pollution, of human activities on nature, the carbon print, and solutions for these problems. The main character of the documentary is the famous Leonardo Di Caprio who was named “The United Nations Messenger of Peace” by the secretary general.
He established his foundation with the mission of protecting the world’s last wild places in 1998. In 2007 he created and produced “The 11th Hour”, a documentary film on the state of the natural environment.
