Revealing new solutions to the climate change crisis, the original documentary ICE ON FIRE premieres in the Caribbean on July 23rd at 9:00 PM AST, exclusively on HBO. The film will also be available on HBO GO.
Produced and narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, ICE ON FIRE is an eye-opening documentary that focuses on never-before-seen solutions designed to slow down our escalating environmental crisis, going beyond the current climate change narrative.
Eleven years after director Leila Conners’ first collaboration with DiCaprio on The 11th Hour, which emphasized the problems of climate change, ICE ON FIRE focuses on the cutting-edge research behind today’s climate science – and the innovations aimed at reducing carbon in the atmosphere, which could pave the way for a reduction in the global temperature rise and benefit the planet’s life systems. While much of the political and economic focus has been on the energy sector, the film points out that drawdown (pulling CO2 out of the atmosphere and oceans and sequestering it underground or into new materials) is perhaps a hopeful solution for mitigating climate change.
ICE ON FIRE offers a realistic but hopeful perspective on a key global issue that demands attention, explaining that while the risks and urgency may be higher than ever today, there are also greater opportunities for innovative solutions.
Directed by Conners, ICE ON FIRE is produced by Oscar®-winner Leonardo DiCaprio, George DiCaprio and Mathew Schmid.
All HBO original documentaries are available anytime, anywhere on HBO GO.
