Today The 11th Hour hits theaters across the USA. The 11th hour is produced and narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio.
This film is not really about global warming, like Al Gores An Inconvenient Truth. The 11th Hour looks at â€œhumanityâ€™s past, present, and future: how we came to meet this desperate tipping point, how we live and impact our earthâ€™s ecosystems, and what we must do to ensure a worthwhile futureâ€.
The 11th hour has an impressive collection of interviews with political leaders, designers and visionaries. Former Soviet Prime Minister Mikhail Gorbachev, scientist Stephen Hawking, and sustainable design authority William McDonough are a few of the people in the film.
I personally havenâ€™t seen the film yet, as I live in Sweden, but the reviews that have been published so far can only say good things about the film.
Watch the film if you can and if you canâ€™t at least check out the trailer and visit the official site for lots of juicy stuff until the film hits your country.
