“Before the Flood, directed by Fisher Stevens, captures a three-year personal journey alongside Academy Award-winning actor and U.N. Messenger of Peace Leonardo DiCaprio as he interviews individuals from every facet of society in both developing and developed nations who provide unique, impassioned and pragmatic views on what must be done today and in the future to prevent catastrophic disruption of life on our planet.”
The score for the film was written by a dream team consisting of Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, Gustavo Santaolalla, and post-rock veterans Mogwai. The group’s soundtrack premiered on Apple Music last week, and you can listen to it here.
