The 11th Hour

Conners Petersen is the founder and codirector of the Tree Media Group and executive editor of Global Viewpoint. They've produced two documentaries — Global Warming (2001) and Water Planet (2004) — for DiCaprio's Web site, and Conners will soon be directing her first narrative feature, Earthquake Weather.

The 11th Hour used 150 hours of stock footage, more than any other documentary in history. The lofty quotes that didn't make it into the film have found a home on YouTube and the movie's official Web site,

"Even though there's a lot of information, it's an emotional film," Conners says. "Rather than just telling you information that you intellectually take into the world, I feel like the film is done in such a way that you feel the world in a different way."<\!s>*
