A film that’s been revered as one of the best examples of climate change to have ever been brought to the big screen – winner of countless awards including Excellence in Cinematography at Sundance and Best Feature Film at the Big Sky Film Festival among many others – Chasing Ice is coming to the silver screen for perhaps the last time in Toronto. On June 12th, an exclusive screening of Chasing Ice will take place at the Cineplex Yonge and Dundas.
Directed by Jeff Orlowski, this stunning visual and cerebral cinematic experience follows acclaimed photographer James Balog as he sets up and catalogues shocking changes in the Arctic icebergs through revolutionary time-lapse video. Shot over several years, Balog captures a “haunting” display of climate change as years are turned into seconds before your eyes.
With a video and production team comprised entirely of Academy Award winning or nominated individuals, the final product is as thrilling for the audience as it was for the filmmakers who risked their lives, careers and general well-being in pursuit of one of the most revealing stories of recent years. A fragile and often misunderstood problem, issues of climate change are depicted with such poignancy in Chasing Ice that even the most skeptic viewers will be floored. In fact, Balog himself was a skeptic about climate change before making this film.
