More about the film: In spring 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog went to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic. Balog was charged with capturing images to tell the story of Earth’s changing climate. The result was the Extreme Ice Survey, using revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers. The award-winning new film "Chasing Ice" captures some of the extreme lengths Balog had to go to document this beautiful, haunting, and shifting landscape.
