Park Forest, IL—(ENEWSPF)—June 17, 2012.  On Saturday, June 23 at 7 p.m., Leonardo DeCaprio’s documentary ‘The 11th Hour’ will be screened at the Unitarian Universalist Community Church, 70 Sycamore Drive, Park Forest.  A discussion will take place following the movie.  The movie screening is free and open to the public.

With contributions from over 50 politicians, scientists, and environmental activists, including former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, physicist Stephen Hawking, Nobel Prize winner Wangari Maathai, and journalist Paul Hawken, the film documents the grave problems facing the planet’s life systems.
