CHASING ICE

 

What do an environmental photographer and a Climate Change skeptic have in common? In the case of Chasing Ice, they’re the same person. Despite misgivings, James Balog takes an assignment by National Geographic to capture images that would tell the story of Climate Change. Once he witnesses mighty glaciers shrink, he sets off on a mission to gather incontrovertible evidence to share with the world. Chasing Ice is epic journey of courage to capture truth before it melts away.

 

The film screening and Q&A are free with registration. Please bring your receipt and check in by 6:20 pm. Immediately after 6:20 pm, all open seats will be available to the waiting list, and then walks-ins on a first-come, first-served basis.
