The 11th Hour is produced and narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio; written and directed by LEILA CONNERS PETERSEN and NADIA CONNERS; produced by LEILA CONNERS PETERSEN, Brian Gerber, and Chuck Castleberry.

Synopsis: 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 dialogs 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 more than fifty leading scientists, thinkers, and leaders who discuss the most important issues that face our planet and people.

“Yeah, yeah, yeah, the environment, blah, blah, blah, melting ice caps. To judge from all the gas-guzzlers still fouling the air and the plastic bottles clogging the dumps, it appears that the news that we are killing ourselves and the world with our greed and garbage hasn’t sunk in. That s one reason The 11th Hour, an unnerving, surprisingly affecting documentary about our environmental calamity, is such essential viewing.” New York Times
