CHASING ICE - DOCUMENTARY (PG-13)--In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. This story on one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of your changing planet. Within months of that first 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. As the debate polarizes America and the intensity of natural disasters ramps up globally, Balog finds himself battling untested technology in subzero conditions, coming face to face with his own mortality. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate.
