Last minute appearance for Hollywood's biggest star Leo DiCaprio to promote his global warming documentary, Before the Flood. The Titanic star narrated and interviewed various Miami locals including Miami Beach Mayor Phillip Levine and who attend the world premiere at the at Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto's entertainment district.
The doc was directed by Fisher Stevens, and had other Miami guest including Scott Robins, movie director Brett Ratner and actor Robert Townsend.
“The origins of wanting to do a movie like this was to give the scientific community a voice,” UN Ambassador of Peace DiCaprio told TIFF fans before the movie. “We’ve long ignored the prediction of the scientific community. Ninety-seven per cent of the scientific community agrees that we are contributing to the issue of climate change in such a major way that we are altering the course of the future as we know it. We’re risking not only our life on Earth, but future generations.”
