From the producer of the Academy Award-winning Documentary "The Cove", Chasing Ice is the story of National Geographic's award-winning photographer James Balong'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.
FREE to anyone! Screening on March 5th, at 7 pm, followed by a discussion with professors, students and the public audience.
Two guests for discussion: a documentary film professor who specializes in documentary mode and representation, and a geography professor who specializes in climate change and glacier response.
We put together this event for the following reasons:
1. It is a visually astonishing documentary
2. It deals with serious environmental issues
3. We want to raise more awareness from the public on these problems and possibly facilitate some environmental actions
