Environmental photographer James Balog heads to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth's changing climate.
516 ARTS and Downtown ABQ MainStreet Initiative present a large outdoor screening of the spectacular film Chasing Ice. Chasing Ice is the story of one man's mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet. With a band of young adventurers in tow, Balog deployed revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world's changing glaciers. Balog's 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 hoe to our carbon-powered planet. It received the 2014 News and Documentary Emmy award for Outstanding Nature Programming. It has screened in more than 172 countries and on all seven continents. 2012, runtime: 172 minutes.
