Chasing Ice - Free Documentary Film Screening

maxresdefault.jpg 

 

“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.
