The Kensington Conservancy is showcasing the movie Chasing Ice at Sault College on December 10, 2012. The Sault will be one of the first Canadian cities to premiere this amazing film!
Chasing Ice is the story of acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog, 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. In Chasing Ice, Balog deploys revolutionary time‐lapse cameras 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 in motion 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 polarizes America, and the intensity of natural disasters ramps up globally, Chasing Ice depicts a heroic photojournalist on a mission to deliver fragile hope to our carbon-powered planet.
So save the Date: December 10 at 7 p.m. in the Multimedia Room at Sault College Room B1107. Seating is limited seating—email Tanna Elliott to pre-register.
