Academy Award winner Leonardo DiCaprio is scheduled to join President Barack Obama in a conversation about climate change at the White House for the South By South Lawn Event on Monday.
After their discussion, DiCaprio will premiere his new climate documentary film “Before the Flood,” presented by National Geographic “in a first-of-its-kind film screening on the South Lawn of the White House.”
The climate conversation and film screening will be a part of the South by South Lawn event that the White House calls a “festival of ideas, art, and action.”
Obama attended South by Southwest earlier this year for a conversation on civic engagement. He “called on creative thinkers and entrepreneurs from across the country to help tackle our toughest challenges.”
