Chasing Ice March 7, 2013  |  By Jane Lavino

On Thursday March 21, Photographer James Balog will be at the National Museum of Wildlife Art for a 7pm screening of his much anticipated film “Chasing Ice.”

Check out the Chasing Ice movie trailer.

Our Museum has long been interested in following and supporting Balog’s creative projects. In the early 1990’s we exhibited “Survivors.” -Portraits of endangered wildlife. About ten years later, we hosted “Tree: A New Vision of the American Forest.”

Since 2007 Balog and his Extreme Ice Survey team have been working to tell the story of a planet in flux via time lapse photography. They planted 27 time-lapse cameras at remote sites across the Arctic and in the Rocky Mountains to capture a multi-year record of changing glaciers. “Chasing Ice” was directed by Jeff Orlowski and was first shown at the Sundance Film Festival. It has been called the most important environmental documentary since Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth.”
