Undeniable evidence of our changing planet is captured by environmental photographer James Balog through revolutionary time-lapse cameras deployed by the Extreme Ice Survey capturing a multi-year record of the world's changing glaciers. In Chasing Ice, witness the hauntingly beautiful videos that compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate. The vivid images of the majestic ice caps slowly melting away are set to Academy-Award nominated soundtrack featuring Scarlett Johansson. Join oceanography and climate change researcher Dr. John B. Anderson of Rice University at HMNS for the premiere screening of the film Chasing Ice in Houston in the Wortham Giant Screen Theatre. This is a one-night-only event.
Fair warning: The IMAX is a large place, but there will be a large demand for these tickets.
If there is interest, we may set up meeting for dinner just before.
