Chasing Ice

Jeff Orlowski/2012/76 min/Climate Change

FILM DESCRIPTION: Acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog conceived the boldest expedition of his life: The Extreme Ice Survey. With a band of young adventurers in tow, he began deploying revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate. Chasing Ice depicts a master photographer at the edge of his physical and creative capabilities, risking everything to deliver evidence and hope to our carbon-powered planet. This film won accolades at Sundance and other prestigious international festivals for cinematography, musical score and overall excellence.

Teens and young adults encouraged to attend.
