Chasing Ice

National Geographic photographer James Balog journeys to the Arctic seeking visual proof of the effects of climate change. Winner of the Audience Award (Documentary) at SXSW Festival 2012.

"Balog deploys revolutionary time-lapse cameras to capture a multi-year record of the world's changing glaciers. Traveling with a team across the brutal Arctic, Balog risks his career and his well-being in pursuit of the biggest story facing humanity. As the debate polarizes America, and the intensity of natural disasters ramps up globally, Chasing Ice depicts a heroic photojournalist on a mission to deliver fragile hope to our carbon-powered planet." (SXSW 2012)

Winner of the Audience Award (Documentary) at SXSW Festival 2012, and the Cinematography Award at Sundance 2012.

If any film can convert the climate-change sceptics, Chasing Ice would be it: here, seeing really is believing.

The "green" teams looking into such energy sources as solar, wind and nuclear are often ridiculed. Watch Chasing Ice and see if you laugh.

Though the filmmaker's point of view on the matter seems quite clear, Orlowski does smartly acknowledge counterarguments against climate change without dwelling on them.

Is this about the hazards of global warming or the awesomeness of James Balog? Not entirely sure...
