Chasing Ice: a film by Jeff Orlowski



Blu Ray / 74 MINUTES / COLOUR / 1080P HD / 5.1 SURROUND SOUND / IN ENGLISH

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 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. 

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. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains or ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate. CHASIING ICE depicts a photographer trying to deliver evidence and hope to our carbon-powered planet. 

SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE

Collectable Booklet, Director’s Commentary, "Before My Time,” Film Festival Q&As, Glacier Watching, Making-of CHASING ICE,  Making the Time-Lapses, the Sundance Experience, Testimonials, Time Now, Science Update.
