Synopsis

Acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog was once a skeptic about climate change an a cynic about the nature of academic research. But through his Extreme Ice Survey, he discovers undeniable evidence of our changing planet. In CHASING ICE, Balog deploys revolutionary time-lapse camera 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 adverturers across the brutal Arctic, Balog risks his career and his wellbeing in pursuit of the biggest story facing humanity. As the debate polarized America, and the intensity of natural disasters ramps up globally, CHASING ICE depicts a heroic photojournalist on a mission to delivery fragile hope to our carbon-powered planet.

Reviews

“As watchable as it is important.” – New York Times

“The case for climate change is mounted in visually breathtaking yet conventional fashion in Chasing Ice.” – Variety

“Though the filmmaker’s point of view on the matter seems quite clear, Orlowski does smartly acknowledge counterarguments against climate change without dwelling on them.” - Los Angeles Times
