Before The Flood and The 11th Hour: The Climate Change Films Of Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio’s history as an environmental activist goes back before his 2014 appointment as UN Messenger of Peace, with a special emphasis on Climate Change.  In 2007, DiCaprio produced The 11th Hour, a “first-rate documentary on ecology and the environment” (The Guardian) before his latest call to action in Before The Flood, which premiered to a global audience last month via National Geographic.  

In both cases, like-minded acclaimed musicians Cocteau Twins, Sigur Rós, Lamb and composers Jean Pascal Beintus & Eric Avery on The 11th Hour, and Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross, Gustavo Santaolalla and Mogwai on Before The Flood, teamed up in solidarity to support the cause.  The soundtracks are out now on Lakeshore Records, and you can preview them below.

The 11th Hour: “Alternately soothing and eerie, appropriate…” – AllMusic.com

The 11th Hour: “Well-researched and swimming in scientific data” – RottenTomatoes.com

Before The Flood: “This score is simply beautiful” – Soundtrack Dreams

“The film zips along at an entertaining pace, buoyed by a terrific original score from Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, Mogwai, and Gustavo Santaolalla.” – Collider
