Chasing Ice - Environmental Film Series

In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth's changing climate. 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. Battling untested technology in subzero conditions, Balog comes face to face with his own mortality. 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.

Sponsored by the Moravian College Environmental Studies & Sciences Program and through a grant from the Margaret A. Cargill Foundation.

An opportunity for discussion will follow the film.
