Details

In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog
headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic to
capture images to help tell the story of the Earths changing climate.
Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about
climate change. But that first trip north opened his eyes to the biggest
story in human history and sparked a challenge within him that would
put his career and his very well-being at risk. Chasing Ice is the
story of one man's mission to change the tide of history by gathering
undeniable evidence of our changing planet. Within months of that first
trip to Iceland, the photographer conceived the boldest expedition of
his life: The Extreme Ice Survey. With a band of young adventurers in
tow, Balog began deploying revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the
brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world's changing
glaciers.
As the debate polarizes America and the intensity of natural disasters
ramps up globally, Balog finds himself at the end of his tether.
Battling untested technology in subzero conditions, he comes face to
face with his own mortality. It takes years for Balog to see the fruits
of his labor. 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 photographer trying to
deliver evidence and hope to our carbon-powered planet.
