Chasing Ice is a film you can feel in your stomach. One that is haunting and beautiful in its ability to tell the story of ice. Photographer, James Balog embarks on the greatest mission of his career: risking his life for a multiple-year project using state-of-the-art cameras in the most harrowing weather conditions to capture of glacial melting. Balog hikes the ice caps in Alaska, Iceland, and Greenland placing cameras that capture the melt through time-lapse photography. The years of photography is compressed into seconds, where the ice comes alive as it retracts, crumbles and changes the face of our coldest climates.
