Film Series: Before the Flood
On Wednesday, January 18th, Sustainable Lafayette and the Town Hall Theatre are co-hosting a special film event featuring the new documentary “Before the Flood.” The new film features Leonardo DiCaprio on a journey as a United Nations Messenger of Peace traveling to five continents and the arctic to witness climate change firsthand. With unprecedented access to scientists, political leaders, and thought leaders, DiCaprio shares a riveting account of the changes now occurring as well as the actions we can take to prevent the disruption of life on our planet.
“Before the Flood is a rousing call to action. DiCaprio’s charisma makes it one of the most accessible [environmental documentaries]. His passion and inquisitiveness radiate in his blunt talk and genuine curiosity.” Thom Powers - Toronto Film Festival (where the movie premiered) - Enjoy a pre movie reception with free appetizers and discounted local craft beers (doors open at 6pm)! - Learn the latest status on Lafayette’s use of clean energy! - Ask questions of a local panel of experts, including MCE! - Indulge in free treats after the film! - Get fired up about a series of inspiring events and actions in 2017! - Help fund Town Hall Theatre shifting to 100% clean energy for 2017!
