There is very little footage of glaciers melting, and it's more of a movie about the people and process of filming the glaciers.

Beautiful photos, fantastic video, amazing story of James Balog's quest to photo document glacier recession. Articulate and compelling. Highly recommended. A stake in the heart of the climate change deniers.

Fascinating, frightening. Crazy, cool. Stunning visuals, beautiful and clearly a reality check for global warming. The final calving footage is amazing.

This documentary features some truly breathtaking photography as it tells the story of a climate change study that provides dramatic visual evidence of the disappearance of the planet's glaciers.

"Chasing Ice" is the work of nature photographer James Balog, a man who has taken terrific risks to determine how fast ice is receding on the Solheim glacier in Iceland. He and his small crew set cameras up to take one picture every hour for three years. Doing research is severe weather has its consequences and James Balog narration gives us the difficulties and the victories of his exploration. I wish everyone could see this film, it is that important. It would be especially good in science programs in high schools and colleges. I hope it is already in use there now. Believe me, you will be surprised with what Balog finds at the Solheim Glacier!
P.S. I am very proud of all the patrons who have commented thus far on "Chasing Ice". I am not alone in my praise and all the comments are worthy of your attention. It certainly gives me hope that the message is getting out. Thanks!
