Before the Flood (2016)

Before the Flood is the product of an incredible three-year journey that Leonardo DiCapro took with co-creator and director Fisher Stevens. They went to every corner of the globe to document the devastating impacts of climate change and questioned humanity’s ability to reverse what may be the most catastrophic problem mankind has ever faced. The film documents that our world’s climate is incredibly interconnected and that we are at an urgent breaking point. The film gives us a great sense of urgency, and gives solutions on how we can move forward in facing the challenges that will come. Before the Flood shows on Friday August 23, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at the Madelyn Helling Library, 980 Helling Way (near the Rood Center), Nevada City. Come for the film, and stay for the discussion following the film. $10.00 suggested donation and free tea and organic popcorn! For more information write to ncpeaceandjustice@gmail.com, or visit the Peace & Justice Center’s Facebook page.
