Directed by Fisher Stevens (“The Cove”) and produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, the film explores our planet’s current ecological state of affairs with an eye toward a potentially bleak future. “Climate change is the most critical and urgent problem facing our world today, and it must be a top issue for voters this election day,” DiCaprio told The Hollywood Reporter last month. “Fisher and I set out to make a film that not only educates people about the challenges we face if we fail to act, but one which also shows the solutions we can implement if we can find the political will to do so.”
