The 11th Hour

The 11th Hour

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 “humanity’s past, present, and future: how we came to meet this desperate tipping point, how we live and impact our earth’s ecosystems, and what we must do to ensure a worthwhile future”.

“The 11th Hour” is the last moment when change is possible. The film explores how we’ve arrived at this moment -- how we live, how we impact the earth’s ecosystems, and what we can do to change our course. Featuring ongoing dialogues of experts from all over the world, including former Soviet Prime Minister Mikhail Gorbachev, renowned scientist Stephen Hawking, former head of the CIA R. James Woolsey and sustainable design experts William McDonough and Bruce Mau in addition to over 50 leading scientists, thinkers and leaders who discuss the most important issues that face our planet and people.

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 haven’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 can’t at least check out the trailer and visit the official site for lots of juicy stuff until the film hits your country.

just saw 11th Hour, the "Nature's Operating Instructions" extra feature is especially interesting... apparently there is some amazing technology built into nature, a lot there that we should use as a model for our own technology
