Climate change documentary to play Saturday in Brainerd

"Before the Flood," a 2016 National Geographic documentary featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, will play at 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 27, in the Brainerd Public Library's large conference room.

In his role as UN Messenger of Peace on climate change, he meets with political, business and religious leaders advocating action to counter the effects of climate change.

After the film there will be a discussion on how to strengthen the local environmental movement.

The film presentation is hosted by Brainerd Lakers United for the Environment, the Brainerd High School Eco Club and MN350.
