THe 11th Hour Opens in LA & NY!

August 17, 2007

Check out these great reviews:

New York Times

“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.”

It is our astonishing capacity for hope that distinguishes “The 11thHour” and that speaks so powerfully, in part because it is this all-too-human quality that may finally force us to fight the good fight against the damage we have done and continue to do.”

Los Angeles Times

“The 11th Hour” primarily attempts to describe a critical time in the Earth’s evolution, the last moment we as a species can theoretically make a difference. Through social, economic and political lenses, the film presents a harrowing account of the planet’s current condition, an exploration of the causes and, finally, a look at what can be done in the near future to heal the damage.

The 11th Hour is in these Los Angeles and New York theaters now!

Green Day – “The 11th Hour is Really Great”

August 16, 2007

Billie Joe Armstrong says:

Last week, Adrienne and I went to the premiere of “The 11th Hour,” Leonardo DiCaprio’s new documentary film. The movie is really great. You should check it out (it opens in New York and Los
Angeles on Friday the 17th, and in other cities later this month).

“The 11th Hour” is intense. It tells us the truth that nobody wants to hear: that human beings, especially greedy corporate executives and their politician cronies, are responsible for putting our planet in serious danger. If things don’t change soon, life on Earth may not survive. It has to be this generation that breaks the chain between the polluting
corporations and the crooked politicians, this generation that changes its habits so there’s something left for other species and the people who come after us.

There IS hope. We can make changes in our everyday lives, and most of the technology we need to move forward, we already have today. What we really need is the leadership, and the will, to change.
