An interesting looking film...

Edit:

Leonardo DiCaprio and Stephen Hawking, an interesting mix!

Looks like the film is only marked for release in the US at the moment. It would be great if it was released here too.

Film Synopsis
Leonardo DiCaprio's “The 11th Hour” is a feature length documentary
concerning the environmental crises caused by human actions and their
impact on the planet. "The 11th Hour" documents the cumulative impact of
these actions upon the planet's life systems and calls for restorative action
through a reshaping of human activity. With the help of over fifty of the
world's most prominent thinkers and activists, including reformer Mikhail
Gorbachev, physicist Stephen Hawking, and Nobel Prize winner Wangari
Maathai, “The 11thHour" documents the grave problems facing the
planet's life systems. Global warming, deforestation, mass species
extinction, and depletion of the oceans' habitats are all addressed, and
their causes rooted in human activity. The combination of these crises call
into question the very future not of the planet, but of humanity.


However, the most powerful element of “The 11th Hour” is not a portrait of
a planet in crisis, but the offering of hope and solutions. Scientists and
environmental advocates such as David Orr and Gloria Flora (note: these
names can be interchanged for any of the experts) paint a portrait for a
radically new and exciting future in which humanity seeks not to dominate
the earth's life systems, but to mimic them and coexist. “The 11th Hour"
calls for a future now within our grasp that is both sustainable and
healthier.
