“Chasing Ice” (www.chasingice.com) is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of climate change. The 75-minute feature film features James Balog and a band of young adventurers as they undertake the multi-year Extreme Ice Survey, recording magnificent time-lapse photography across the Arctic. The resulting videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient glaciers and mountains of ice in motion, as they disappear at a breathtaking rate.
“Chasing Ice” recently received the 2014 News and Documentary Emmy® award for Outstanding Nature Programming. Since the film made its TV debut on the National Geographic Channel in 2013, it has screened in more than 172 countries and on all 7 continents.
Geos Institute is hosting three free screenings of the film on October 23 and 24 in Ashland and Medford (see dates and venues below).
After the 75-minute feature film, there will be open discussion.
Co-sponsors include Rogue Climate, Southern Oregon Climate Action Network, ScienceWorks Museum, Oregon Climate, and Siskiyou FilmFest.
