THE 11TH HOUR describes the last moment
when change is possible. Drought. Famine.
Severe flooding. Record rainfall. Hurricanes.
Acid rain. The highest average temperatures
in recorded history. Catastrophe is reported
on the nightly news as isolated incidents.
But are these incidents isolated, or pieces
of a larger global puzzle that could unlock humanity's future?

In the history of the planet, humanity's time on earth has been short but powerful. The human drive to ensure its own survival and quality of life has revolutionized industry, science, nutrition and medicine. But it has also effected unprecedented changes in the delicate balance that makes life on earth possible.

But are these changes to the earth permanent? Or are they puzzle pieces that, if connected, reveal a larger story that needs to be told - a human story that takes into account who we are and the state of our relationship to this planet, our only home. We are in an environmental age whether we like it or not.

Produced and narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, directed by Leila Conners Petersen and Nadia Conners and co-written by Conners Petersen, Conners and DiCaprio, THE 11TH HOUR explores how humanity has arrived at this moment - how we live, how we impact the earth's ecosystems, and what we can do to change our course.

The film features dialogues with 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 over 50 leading scientists, thinkers and leaders who present the facts and discuss the most important issues that face our planet.
