    Loved this documentary! Thank you!

    Is there any webpage where I can find the references of the information presented in the film? I’d love to have access to the data, to inform myself and my skeptical friends

    I’d like to know if the documentary is available in English with English subtitles. I am a teacher of English as a second language, I’d like to watch it with my students to start a discussion, but without subtitles it would be a bit too difficult to follow.
    Who can help me? Thanks.

    A Review of This Documentary:
    This documentary speaks to the urgency of the global warming/climate change issue that is killing our world. Up till now, we the people have been ignoring the problem but now, it is almost too late to save our world unless we take drastic steps, put our heads together, invent new inventions that benefit the environment rather than harm it. Wake up people, the time is now. Leonard DiCaprio really shines a light on the issue and the devastation taking place as it continues to be unsolved as he speaks to experts, visits places and draws from his own experiences all the while making it into a beautifully portrayed movie capturing the reality of life.

    Every member of the human race should watch this film. Perhaps then, there would be some small chance that life on earth will exist in 100 years. We MUST vote out the Climate Change Deniers and the Fossil Fuel purveyors or there is precious little chance that our grandchildren will get to die of old age.

    Wow, thank you Leonardo and all those who gave energy into producing this work. I SO appreciate you all and am committed to doing my small part to be part of the change/solution and to maintain some refuge of sanity within such an insane system. The great journey continues!

    Our church’s Green Team plan to show this movie at the church in February, with the public invited. We plan to advertise the showing (which will be free) using the publicity photo for Before the Flood. Do we need permission? If so who do we ask? Thanks
