More than a documentary…a visionary true account of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of climate change.
Internationally acclaimed NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC photographer James Balog was once a skeptic about climate change. But through his Extreme Ice Survey, he discovers undeniable evidence of our changing planet.
In ‘CHASING ICE‘, we follow Balog across the Arctic as he uses revolutionary time-lapse cameras designed for one purpose: to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers. Balog’s hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate. The film includes astounding scenes from a glacier calving event that took place at Jakobshavn Glacier in Greenland and which lasted 75 minutes, the longest such event ever captured on film.
Traveling with a young team of adventurers by helicopter, canoe and dog sled across three continents, Balog risks career and well-being in pursuit of the biggest story in human history.
As the climate change debate continues on and the intensity of natural disasters ramp up around the world, ‘CHASING ICE’ depicts a heroic photojournalist gathering evidence of the need for immediate action to save the planet from ourselves.
Doors open at 6:30p.m. for light refreshments. There will be discussion after the film.
