Chasing Ice Screening and Discussion

James BalogJames Balog, Director of Time-Lapse and Still Photography, Chasing Ice; Author, Extreme Ice Now: Vanishing Glaciers and Changing Climate

With America paralyzed by the debate on climate change, a team of daring adventurers set out for the Arctic with National Geographic photographer James Balog to capture the world’s shrinking glaciers. With the use of revolutionary time-lapse cameras, Chasing Ice compresses years of glacial retreat into hauntingly beautiful videos that follow a world-class photographer’s endeavor to deliver evidence and hope to our carbon-powered planet. Chasing Ice won awards at Sundance and many other film festivals and was produced by Paula DuPré Pesmen, producer of the Academy Award-winning film, The Cove.

After the screening, Climate One’s Greg Dalton with talk with James Balog about filming the vanishing Arctic glaciers and what that means for all of us.
