The award-winning documentary, Chasing Ice, chronicles the story of photographer James Balog’s mission to gather evidence of our changing planet. With a team of young adventurers, Balog deployed time-lapse cameras across the Arctic to capture the world’s glaciers as they melted over the course of several years. The result is a haunting visual record that compresses years into seconds and documents ancient mountains of ice disappearing.


Chasing Ice is "full of stunning images in addition to being timely... as watchable as it is important," according to The New York Times. It has won nearly 20 awards at film festivals around the world, including the Sundance Film Festival’s Excellence in Cinematography Award for a U.S. documentary. The film has received such high acclaim that it was screened at the White House on Earth Day this past April.
