Chasing Ice


2012 | 74 minutes | Rated PG-13

National Geographic photographer James Balog’s Extreme Ice Survey took photos of glaciers as they melted over hours, days, months, and years—and captured remarkable, time-lapse images of climate change in action. Chasing Ice spends too much time on Balog and the challenges he faces in getting his footage, but the footage itself is gorgeous, majestic, and horrific. Spliced with clips of Fox News dipshits insisting global warming isn’t real, Chasing Ice will largely preach to the choir—which is too bad, because as calls to action go, this visually devastating documentary is hard to top.
