Chasing Ice: Screening Now Near You

April 1, 2013

I wish Climate Change and the loss of polar ice was an April Fool’s joke. But it’s not. Climate change is seriously real and the new documentary Chasing Ice shows just how rapidly our planet, especially our polar regions, are changing due to anthropogenic causes.

Currently screening nationwide,  Chasing Ice is coming to the Ventura Film Society Tuesday, April 2, 2013 420 East Santa Clara, across the street from the Blue Orchid.

The film starts at 7:15.  Regular price for tickets is a $10 Donation. Student ticket price is $5 Donation.

After the movie, there will be three speakers:
Rick Ridgeway Patagonia’s VP of Environmental Initiatives
Patty Ridenour – Geology Professor / Ventura College
Rachel Morris, VCCool

According to the film,  “In the spring of 2005, National Geographic photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change and a cynic about the nature of academic research. But that first trip north opened his eyes to the biggest story in human history and sparked a challenge within him that would put his career and his very well-being at risk.Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our 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 at the end of his tether. Battling untested technology in subzero conditions, he comes face to face with his own mortality. It takes years for Balog to see the fruits of his labor. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate.

Chasing Ice depicts a photographer trying to deliver evidence and hope to our carbon-powered planet.”
