2 Free Tickets to DiCaprio's New Eco-documentary: The 11th Hour
This movie's promoter is offering one lucky Wise Bread reader two free tickets to an advanced screening. Editor's note: contest is closed, Zot is our winner!
The 11th Hour is a documentary that unflinchingly examines our devastating impact on the ecosystem. Narrated and produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, the film features commentary from experts such as Stephen Hawking, Mikhail Gorbachev, Wangari Maathai, Ray Anderson, Betsy Taylor, Thom Harmann, and Bill McKibben. The film
takes us through a quick remedial history of humankind, from the birth of life through our evolutionary history to the current moment, when our impact on the ecosystem is threatening our own survival. While Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Ros plays mournful melodies, The 11th Hour parades shots of natural beauty and horrible abuses before us. Jürgen Fauth for About.com .
Ecorazzi describes the movie as
heavy, but promising. Walk in with an open mind (and maybe a notebook, as Thomas notes in his review) and be prepared to feel helpless and sometimes downright terrified before you feel enabled and inspired.
I haven't seen the movie yet, but I do know that Sigur Ros and planet earth make an awesome combo. By the way, I took a shot and requested an interview with Leo and Betsy Taylor, so if you guys have any ideas for questions I can ask please feel free to leave a suggestion.
