A second showing of Chasing Ice will be held at 5 p.m. at the Ware Center.
About the Film: Acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog was once a skeptic about climate change and a cynic about the nature of academic research. But through his Extreme Ice Survey, he discovers undeniable evidence of our changing planet. Balog deploys a revolutionary time-lapse camera to capture a multi-year record of the world's changing glaciers. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice as they disappear at a breathtaking rate. Traveling with a team of young adventurers across the brutal Arctic, Balog risks his career and his well-being in pursuit of the biggest story facing humanity. As the debate polarized America, and the intensity of natural disasters ramps up globally, Chasing Ice depicts a heroic photojournalist on a mission to delivery fragile hope to our carbon-powered planet.
