Directed by Leila Conners, the BHO documentary, Fire on Ice touches on the global environmental crisis which has been described as an ‘eye-opening’ documentary that will focus on ‘many never-before-seen solutions’ that are designed to slow down the ‘escalating environmental crisis’.

The HBO’s synopsis read: ‘The film goes beyond the current climate change narrative and offers hope that we can actually stave off the worst effects of global warming’.

In the trailer, the actor narrates: ‘The melting of the world’s snow and ice has now triggered multiple climate tipping points, especially increasing levels of methane. Scientists have discovered solutions giving us a chance at reversing climate change. ‘But the clock is ticking.’

Leo, 44, who has campaigned to fight climate change since 1998 and was also appointed a United Nations representative on environmental issues in 2014 also has his own non-profit organisation, The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, that is dedicated to the long-term health and wellbeing of all Earth’s inhabitants such as vouching to protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction, while restoring balance to threatened ecosystems and communities.
