BANGKOK — As climate change threatens the world and Bangkok’s very existence, a downtown open-air cinema will host a documentary and discussion to raise awareness about its dangers to the environment.

“Before the Flood,” a 2016 documentary looking at the effects and possible solutions to climate change, will show later this month on the rooftop of a trendy Thonglor boutique followed by an open discussion. The event seeks to inform people about challenges facing the environment and ways to reduce their carbon footprint.

Featuring actor and environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio, the award-winning documentary follows the Hollywood actor and co-director Fisher Stevens as they meet scientists and personalities to discuss the problem.


The Hive Screening: Before The Flood runs 7pm to 10pm on Nov. 30 at The Hive Bangkok in Soi Thonglor 49. It’s reachable via taxi from BTS Thong Lo. Tickets are 150 baht (100 baht for members) and can be purchased online. They include a snack and a drink.
