Date: July 31st 2008 | Time: 7:30 pm
Leonardo DiCaprio’s The 11th Hour is a feature length documentary
about the environmental crises caused by human actions and their
impact on the planet.
The 11th Hour is the last moment when change is possible. The film
explores how we’ve arrived at this moment – how we live, how we impact
the earth’s ecosystems, and what we can do to change our course.
Featuring ongoing dialogues of experts from all over the world,
including former Soviet Prime Minister Mikhail Gorbachev, renowned
scientist Stephen Hawking, former head of the CIA R. James Woolsey and
sustainable design experts William McDonough and Bruce Mau in addition
to over 50 leading scientists, thinkers and leaders who discuss the
most important issues that face our planet and people.
However, the most powerful element of The 11th Hour is not a portrait
of a planet in crisis, but the offering of hope and solutions.
Scientists and environmental advocates such as David Orr and Gloria
Flora paint a portrait for a radically new and exciting future in
which humanity seeks not to dominate the earth’s life systems, but to
mimic them and coexist. The 11th Hour calls for a future now within
our grasp that is both sustainable and healthier.
