Film Screening: "Chasing Ice"
by Dan Armstrong
Chasing Ice
Dominican will present the award-winning documentary Chasing Ice on Monday, February 11, as a preview of the Oak Park/River Forest One Earth Film Festival which will be held the weekend of March 1 - 3. The documentary will be shown at 7 p.m. in the Priory Auditorium.

Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to provide visual evidence of Earth’s changing climate. Produced and directed by Jeff Orlowski, producer of the 2009 Academy Award-winning documentary The Cove, Chasing Ice uses still photographs and revolutionary time-lapse photography to capture the rapid disappearance of ancient mountains of ice across the Arctic. Acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog and his team set up 25 cameras and recorded changes in glaciers over the course of three years to show just how quickly the Arctic landscape was changing.


Balog first went to the Arctic in 2005 on an assignment with National Geographic. An initial skeptic about climate change, Balog became a believer after seeing first-hand the dramatic changes in the Arctic landscape. He returned on the biggest expedition of his life—The Extreme Ice Survey. The result of his work is a hauntingly beautiful but alarming visual testament to changes in our environment.

The Huffington Post proclaimed Chasing Ice “one of the most beautiful and important films ever made” and actor/director/environmental activist Robert Redford stated that “You’ve never seen images like this before…[The film] deserves to be seen and felt on the big screen.”

Chasing Ice is being shown free-of-charge as a preview of Green Community Connections’ One Earth Film Festival, which will include over 30 sustainability-related films and facilitated discussions at sites throughout Oak Park and River Forest the weekend of March 1-3.
