Chasing Ice: A hauntingly beautiful and arresting film

  • November 12, 2013 · 6:30 PM

Acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog - initially a climate change skeptic - had a change of heart after seeing evidence first hand on assignment for National Geographic. Chasing Ice follows Balog and his team across the brutal Arctic as they record the world’s changing glaciers with time-lapse cameras. His videos compress years into seconds, capturing ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate. Battling untested technology in subzero conditions, Balog also comes face to face with his own mortality in his quest to deliver evidence and hope to our carbon-powered planet. $5-10 suggested donation. Introduced by student activist Hallie Turner, of the iMatter youth movement; Discussion at end led by Megan Carroll of the Durham Sustainability Office. Sponsored by CommunEcos & Transition Durham

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
