Chasing Ice - January 15  (Wednesday) January 15  -  7  pm Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history  by gathering evidence of our changing planet.  National  Geographic photographer James Balog conceived the boldest expedition of his  life: The Extreme Ice Survey. With a band of young adventurers in tow, he began  deploying revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a  multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers.  Sundance Festival Award Winner 'You've never seen images like this before...'   Robert Redford Location

    This film was unbelievable fascinating. The risk that these photographers took to take those pictures were incredible.
    They are devoted to clear our minds, what is ahead of us, if we don't change the course of carbon dioxide and all the things that add to global warming.
    It was a film I would not want to miss!!!

    Although the film was notably lacking in the elements I usually look for fine cinema (car crashes, gunfire, and gratuitous nudity), it was quite good. It was (to be serious) spectacular, while also being sobering and inspirational. The sight and sound of a chunk of glacier the size of lower Manhattan violently tearing itself asunder beats anything in any Schwarzenegger flick. And there were no special effects or CGI involved.

    The views of the disappearing glaciers were enlightening! The risks photographers took to get these pictures raised the hair on the back of my neck. YIKES! Some of the scenes were washed out - probably caused by the projector.

    I'm bailing. Too many drivers to worry about in the snow- including me.

    I have been at this church before. It is on the corner of Woodward and Cranbrook Rd. The church is a little in the woods. You would not see it from Woodward.
    It is the first street after the big entrance to Cranbrook Schools.

    The map link for this event points to Cranbrook Ct. I think the location is actually Cranbrook Road as listed above.
