Everything he does makes headlines. Be it his films at the box office, his Oscar win or even his efforts towards bringing about a global change, Leonardo Dicaprio knows how to rule the internet. And he is doing it yet again. Leonardo gave us a sneak peek into his concern towards spreading awareness about the issue of climate change, during his winning speech at the Academy Awards this year. But more than his win for the film The Revenant, what made news was his concluding line “Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted.” And now the 41-year-old Hollywood megastar is once again educating people about the adverse effects of climate change through a special documentary.
Leonardo has featured in a documentary titled ‘Before the Flood’, which was released on the National Geographic channel on Sunday night (October 30). In the 95-minute documentary, the actor has stepped into the shoes of a science journalist who is out interviewing researchers, innovators, and people who are already being affected by the effects of climate change. We can also see Leo meeting President Barack Obama, former President Bill Clinton and Pope Francis to discuss the issue of climate change. The documentary is helmed by Oscar-winning documentarian Fisher Stevens.
National Geographic has posted the documentary for free on various channels and streaming platforms across the internet until November 6, so that people can get easy access to understanding the issue.
The documentary came a day after Leo asked people to make donations for the needy while supporting another cause The icing on the cake was this can help you go on a lunch date with him! All his fans need to do is donate $6 and fly to Edinburgh to become eligible for the contest. This actor surely knows how to use his brand name to work towards making the world a better place.
