Arctic sea ice is the climate’s version of the canary in the coalmine. Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of climate change. Using time-lapse cameras, his videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate.
As the debate polarizes America and the intensity of natural disasters ramps up globally, James Balog finds himself battling untested technology in subzero conditions and coming face-to-face with his own mortality. It takes years for him to see the fruits of his labour, but the results speak for themselves.
Harrowing yet incredibly beautiful, this documentary dramatically presses the case for action on climate change. The film has won 23 awards at film festivals around the world, including the Sundance film Festival
