Cambridge Carbon Footprint was very pleased to team up with the Arts Picturehouse and Dr Ed King, a British Antartic Survey glaciologist, for a Q&A session following the matinee showing of “Chasing Ice” on Saturday December 15th at 3:00pm.
Winner of the cinematography prize at Sundance 2012 and of numerous other awards, Chasing Ice is an achingly beautiful documentary about climate change.
A little about the film, from the Chasing Ice website (where you can also view the trailer): In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change. But that first trip north opened his eyes to the biggest story in human history and sparked a challenge within him that would put his career and his very well-being at risk.
