Double Feature

Before The Flood - 96 min

Trailer at YouTube.

Captures a 3-year personal journey of Academy Award-winning actor and U.N. Messenger of Peace, Leonardo DiCaprio, as he interviews persons 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.

Michael Moore in Trumpland - 73 min

Trailer at YouTube.   Moore discussing the making of the film in an interview with Lawrence O'Donnell.

From review at   “The key to this film . . .  is that [Moore] finds a way to push past the sense of sectarian violence that has shaped our voting blocs into hostile territories. Moore stages a conversation that can serve as a model for democratic deliberation — where, even if we disagree, we don’t have to lose a sense of our common humanity.”
