11th Hour News: DiCaprio Doc to Lincoln Center

Reeler HQ opened bright and early this morning with a note from the Film Society of Lincoln Center slipped under the door; evidently Leonardo DiCaprio's eco-conscious labor of love The 11th Hour will kick off the Society's new Green Screens series on Aug. 2. I don't know if you read this the same way I do, but it looks like Leo is planning a visit see below:

The program launches on Thursday, Aug. 2, at 6:15 p.m., with a special screening of the highly anticipated documentary The 11th Hour, featuring co-producer, co-writer and narrator Leonardo DiCaprio. Through conversations with leading thinkers, scientists and politicians, the film explores the current climate crisis, examines potential future developments and raises an urgent alarm for change. A discussion with several of the film’s participants will follow the screening.

We have a call in to the gang at Lincoln Center requesting confirmation either way, but in any event this is a first-look chance for DiCaprio fans, so consider shopping for tickets early. UPDATED: Word from the Film Society is that DiCaprio is not confirmed and is, in fact, doubtful to attend.

Also in the Film Society's August plans:

--That same night, Film Comment Selects resumes with a preview of the French thriller Them; the series continues Sunday, Aug. 5, with a screening of The Executioner's Song followed by a discussion with director/Norman Mailer collaborator Lawrence Schiller;

--Chazz Palminteri drops in Aug. 9 at the Young Friends of Film screening of Bullets Over Broadway;

--Jeremy Stulberg and Randy Stulberg will attend an Aug. 16 Independent's Night screening of their documentary Off the Grid: Life on the Mesa, characterized as "a rare perspective on the intersection between utopian ideals and post-apocalyptic nightmares." Yeah, yeah -- story of my life.

The 11th Hour isn't listed yet, but keep an eye on the Film Society's Web site for tickets and program information.
