In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog went to the Arctic on an assignment with National Geographic to capture images intended to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change; but through his Extreme Ice Survey he discovers evidence of our changing planet. Chasing Ice follows Balog across the Arctic as he deploys revolutionary time-lapse cameras designed to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers. Balog’s hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate. Traveling with a young team of adventurers by helicopter, canoe and dog sled across three continents, Balog risks his career and his well-being in pursuit of the biggest story in human history.

The film was awarded Excellence in Cinematography, US Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for an Oscar for best original song, among many other notable awards. The film will only be screened once in Nairobi. See it April 27th!
