Garden Theater to screen ‘Before The Flood’

FRANKFORT — The Northern Michigan Chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby is pleased to announce the screening of the documentary film “Before the Flood” this month.

From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Fisher Stevens and Academy Award-winning actor, environmental activist and U.N. Messenger of Peace Leonardo DiCaprio, “Before the Flood” presents the dramatic changes occurring around the world due to climate change, as well as the actions individuals and society can take to prevent catastrophic disruption of life on this planet.

The film will be shown at 5 p.m. on April 23 at The Garden Theater in downtown Frankfort.

The film follows DiCaprio as he travels to five continents and the Arctic speaking to scientists, world leaders, activists and local residents to gain a deeper understanding and investigate concrete solutions to the most pressing challenge of a lifetime.

The visually impactful film touches on many key facets of the issue, such as a carbon tax, global development, building renewables in a capitalist economy, voting power and the importance of leaders who believe in the scientific method and empirical truths.

Citizens Climate Lobby is one group building the political will to solve climate change. Northern Michigan’s rapidly growing CCL chapter is one of hundreds worldwide, using citizen engagement and respectful relationships to push Congress toward action.

Admission to the film is free and CCL volunteers will be on hand to share information about the mission of the organization, current actions, and reasons for hope. For more information about the event contact Cathye Williams at cathye269@gmail.com.
