|Before The Flood
Before the Flood is a 2016 documentary film about climate change directed by Fisher Stevens. The film was produced as a collaboration between Stevens, Leonardo DiCaprio, James Packer, Brett Ratner, Trevor Davidoski, and Jennifer Davisson Killoran. Martin Scorsese is an executive producer.
The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2016, and was released theatrically on October 21, before airing on the National Geographic Channel on October 30. As part of National Geographic’s commitment to covering climate change, the documentary was made widely available and free of charge on various platforms, and the film can be streamed for free on National Geographic Channels through November 7, 2017
Actor and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio travels the world to examine firsthand the effects of climate change, and to learn more about possible ways to prevent catastrophic damage that could make the Earth unsustainable for human life. During his journey, he speaks with such influential figures as President Barack Obama, Pope Francis, and tech innovator Elon Musk, and makes a speech before the United Nations calling for greater action on this issue. Directed by Fisher Stevens.
Blackfish is a 2013 American documentary film directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite. It concerns Tilikum, an orca held by SeaWorld and the controversy over captive killer whales. The film premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival on January 19, 2013, and was picked up by Magnolia Pictures and CNN Films for wider release. It was nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Documentary.
The documentary concerns the captivity of Tilikum, an orca involved in the deaths of three individuals, and the consequences of keeping orcas in captivity. The coverage of Tilikum includes his capture in 1983 off the coast of Iceland and his purported harassment by fellow captive orcas at Sealand of the Pacific. Cowperthwaite argues these incidents contributed to the orca’s aggression. The film includes a testimonial from Lori Marino, director of science with the Nonhuman Rights Project. Cowperthwaite also focuses on SeaWorld’s claims that lifespans of orcas in captivity are comparable to those in the wild, typically 30 years for males and 50 years for females, a claim the film argues is false. Other people interviewed include former SeaWorld trainers, such as John Hargrove, who describe their experiences with Tilikum and other captive whales.
The documentary reports that the whales have experienced extreme stress when their offspring were captured in the wild or when separated after breeding at water parks. The film features footage of attacks on trainers by Tilikum and other captive whales as well as interviews with witnesses.
|Drop into the Ocean
Take a deep breath and imagine the oceans…. This disturbing video is a short Greenpeace documentary outlining the threats that humans pose to our oceans and a proposal for what we ALL can do to help restore their health. Beautiful images, strong message. Runtime: 16 minutes – 2005.
|Encounters at the End of the World
Acclaimed filmmaker Werner Herzog travels to Antarctica, where he finds a desolate, beautiful landscape, largely untouched by human hands, and a group of truly unique people who risk their lives to study it. Centered at McMurdo Station, the United States’ largest Antarctic research center, Herzog explores the minds of the scientists willing to abandon civilization and endure volatile conditions to learn more about the continent’s wildlife and awe-inspiring natural wonders.
|Ice and The Sky
Ice and the Sky (French: La Glace et le ciel, also known as Antarctica: Ice and Sky) is a 2015 French documentary film directed by Luc Jacquet about the work of Claude Lorius, who began studying Antarctic ice in 1957, and, in 1965, was the first scientist to be concerned about global warming. The film was selected to close the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.
With Ice & Sky, Wild-Touch and Luc Jacquet travel back to the genesis of collective intelligence and forge a bond between the past and present stakeholders and the general public. Stemming from such a promise, a dynamic will encourage each one of us to join forces and respond to climate change, and together rewrite the rules of our future society.
|March of Penguins
March of the Penguins (French La Marche de l’empereur) is a 2005 French feature-length nature documentary directed and co-written by Luc Jacquet, and co-produced by Bonne Pioche and the National Geographic Society. The documentary depicts the yearly journey of the emperor penguins of Antarctica. In autumn, all the penguins of breeding age (five years old and over) leave the ocean, their normal habitat, to walk inland to their ancestral breeding grounds. There, the penguins participate in a courtship that, if successful, results in the hatching of a chick. For the chick to survive, both parents must make multiple arduous journeys between the ocean and the breeding grounds over the ensuing months.
It took one year for the two isolated cinematographers Laurent Chalet and Jérôme Maison to shoot the documentary, which was shot around the French scientific base of Dumont d’Urville in Adélie Land.
The documentary won the 2006 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.
|Nature is Speaking
Nature doesn’t need people. People need nature. That’s the message of Conservation International’s provocative, celebrity-voiced campaign, “Nature Is Speaking.” The aim is to raise awareness that people need nature in order to survive. Other conservation groups are also employing the power of film to convey pressing environmental messages and move their supporters to action. See examples of environmental impact short films by leading environmental non-profits, including the Nature is Speaking series and other engaging short films highlighting the value of nature to people.
Oceans (French: Océans) is a 2009 French nature documentary film directed, produced, co-written, and narrated by Jacques Perrin, with Jacques Cluzaud as co-director. The film explores the marine species of Earth’s five oceans and reflects on the negative aspects of human activity on the environment, with Perrin (Pierce Brosnan in English) providing narration.
Budgeted at around $80 million, it was filmed in over 50 different places and took four years to film. In North America, the film was distributed by Disney, who cut 20 minutes mostly depicting violent massacres of sea animals (recreated through visual effects) in order to aim it at a younger audience.
The Odyssey (French title: L’Odyssée) is a 2016 French-Belgian biographical adventure film directed by Jérôme Salle and written by Salle and Laurent Turner, based on the non-fiction book Capitaine de La Calypso by Albert Falco and Yves Paccalet. The film stars Lambert Wilson, Pierre Niney, and Audrey Tautou.
The film follows the great French ocean-going adventurer, biologist, and filmmaker Jacques-Yves Cousteau (Lambert Wilson) who embarks on a grand voyage aboard his Calypso vessel. With him, he takes his son Phillippe (Pierre Niney), with whom he has not had a good relationship for years. Despite the problems, the two will have to overcome all their differences and hurts to survive on the high seas.

Fascinating beauty of nature and portraits of extraordinary people who are trying to save this beauty from destruction. “We can only protect what we know well,” – says the French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand, therefore, fifteen years carries out its grand project – documenting the state of the Earth turn of the century using aerial photographs. Implemented with his ideas, the popular TV series “Earth seen from the sky” has been already the fourth series episodes. Earth as seen from the sky “is a remarkable document of great power of expression. The mesmerizing beauty of the image and mood music, full of lyricism and emotional picture of the place, the rescue should be a priority of all mankind. This is a call to reflection and action, signal the alarm and the beginning of the revival.
