Nancy Rosenthal and Dr. Michael Mann

New York WILD was delighted to screen the incredibly beautiful and impactful Nat Geo film Before the Flood, produced by Leonardo DiCaprio and directed by Fisher Stevens. Before the Flood won Best in Festival at New York WILD in 2017. The evening was co-presented with Tesla and the Southampton Arts Center on Saturday July 29th.

We were honored to have the renowned Dr. Michael E. Mann, featured in the film, enlighten us even further about the issues of climate change during his Q&A after the screening.

Attendees enjoyed checking out Tesla’s new “Model S” and “Model X” cars. Fisher Stevens was unable to attend the event, but sent this video. Check it out:

We’re excited that the US debut of “Metronomic” is being covered by Men’s Journal!

“…a captivating film that makes its U.S. debut at the New York WILD Film Festival … the festival will present a range of adventure and eco-minded films, including “Before the Flood”, in which Leonardo DiCaprio heads deep into countries affected by climate change, and “4 Mums in a Boat”, a doc about a group of female Brits who aim to break the world’s record for oldest rowers across the Atlantic.”
