Event Description

James Balog, a climate change skeptic, directed the Extreme Ice Survey, and discovers undeniable evidence of our changing planet. Revolutionary time-lapse cameras capture a multi-year record of the world's changing glaciers. Hauntingly beautiful, this polar adventure delivers the goods.

"The case for climate change is mounted in visually breathtaking yet conventional fashion in Chasing Ice." Justin Chang, Variety

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, Balog deploys revolutionary time-lapse cameras 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. Traveling with a team of young adventurers across the brutal Arctic, Balog risks his career and his well-being in pursuit of the biggest story facing humanity. As the debate polarizes America, and the intensity of natural disasters ramps up globally, Chasing Ice depicts a heroic photojournalist on a mission to deliver fragile hope to our carbon-powered planet.
