Description

According to Sundance London 2012; "Easily one of the most eagerly-anticipated films to feature in this year's inaugural Sundance London festival program for me was the National Geographic-funded documentary Chasing Ice (2012). Director Jeff Orlowski has painstakingly created a fascinating and powerful movie about climate change by presenting the audience with the globally important work of photographer James Balog and his Extreme Ice Survey Project—a film so eye-opening and socially important that it demands to be seen."

 

 

Presenter(s)
Introduction and Q & A by Dr. W. Tad Pfeffer, a glaciologist at the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTAAR) and professor of civil, environmental, and architectural engineering at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
