The film trailer:
“Project: Ice” examines the Great Lakes through the prism of ice, which has charmed and challenged people for centuries. Opening with stunning images of natural ice formations, the movie goes back to Native Americans and early settlers who discovered that frozen water could be a major part of your reality for half of the year. When shipping became a major industry, haulers had to come up with ingenious ways to cut through crippling jams, creating bold new ship designs that were copied around the world. The movie’s second half focuses on the ongoing studies of ice patterns and thickness and the effect that global warming may be having on Great Lakes livelihoods.
Panel info: A panel discussion immediately following the screening will delve into the film, the health of the Great Lakes and more. Participants will include Kleinert and two noted Great Lakes and environmental experts: Henry Pollack, professor emeritus of geophysics at the University of Michigan and Lana Pollack, chairwoman of the U.S. Section of the International Joint Commission. The forum will be moderated by former Free Press editorial page editor Ron Dzwonkowski.
