Chasing Ice: A Conversation
90 Minute Running Time
In spring 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic: to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Even with his scientific background, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change. But that first trip north opened his eyes and sparked a challenge within him that would put his career and his very well-being at risk. Within months of that 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.
Balog’s story is told in a new Colorado-produced documentary, Chasing Ice. Directed by Jeff Orlowski, edited by Academy Award-winning producer Davis Coombe, and produced by Oscar-winning producer Paula DuPre Pesman and Oscar-nominated independent filmmaker Jerry Aronson, the film has won awards at film festivals around the world. It opens nationwide in November.
