Oscar Nominated, “Chasing Ice” is a landmark in cinematic achievement. Through the use of revolutionary time-lapse cameras, National Geographic photojournalist James Balog captures the eroding glaciers of the world. This eerie yet awe-inspiring documentary presents irrefutable evidence of global climate change. Once a skeptic, Balog realizes firsthand the dire condition of our changing planet. Polarized debates continue over climate change as natural disasters wreak havoc across the globe. In “Chasing Ice” Balog provides compelling visual documentation of our environmental crisis. Already taking home awards at various film festivals including Sundance, SXSW and Boulder International, this riveting and timely documentary has the power to persuade and inspire.
“A grand adventure, a visual amazement and a powerful warning.” - Colin Covert, Star Tribune
“Considering the gravity of the situation there is very little preaching in “Chasing Ice.” Facts about global warming are presented then backed up with staggering visuals. An audience is invited to accept it as proof, or not.” - Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
