Watch Leonardo DiCaprio's Doc 'Before the Flood' for Free on YouTube
"The Science is Clear. The Future is Not." Good news, documentary fans! National Geographic has released the full-length version of the documentary Before the Flood (watch the trailer), produced by and starring Leonardo DiCpario, online on YouTube for free. Completely free! In fact, if you mention the hashtag #BeforeTheFlood online, they'll even donate money to different wildlife conservation organizations. It also features a fantastic score composed by Mogwai, Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross, + Gustavo Santaolalla (you can buy the album here). I had the chance to watch this recently and I thought it was a superb doc, inspiring and encouraging. I've seen pretty much every single recent doc about climate change and the environment, and this is one of the best. Really. Not only is DiCaprio honest and entertaining, he's hopeful about our future - as long as we all come together and recognize we need to change. Just watch! Link below.
The documentary is now available to watch for free on YouTube - see below or click for fullscreen version:
Update! It was available for a "limited time" - to watch the doc now you must rent it. Visit the official site.

From Academy Award-winning actor, environmental activist and U.N. Messenger of Peace Leonardo DiCaprio, Before the Flood presents a riveting account of the dramatic changes now occurring around the world due to climate change, as well as the actions we as individuals and as a society can take to prevent catastrophic disruption of life on our planet. The film follows DiCaprio as he travels to five continents as well as the Arctic speaking to scientists, world leaders, activists and local residents to gain a deeper understanding of this complex issue and investigate concrete solutions to the most pressing environmental challenge of our time. Before the Flood is directed by award-winning filmmaker Fisher Stevens, of this year's doc Bright Lights, plus the films Another World, Mission Blue, Stand Up Guys, Crazy Love and Just a Kiss previously. The doc first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival. National Geographic showed Before the Flood initially on their TV channel and in theaters, before releasing it online. Let us know your thoughts.
