Plot Summary:

The film follows James Balog, an award-winning National Geographic photographer, on his obsessive journey to capture rapidly-eroding glaciers in the Arctic. Balog is the director and founder of the Extreme Ice Survey (EIS), a long-term photography project that uses a series of sophisticated time-lapse cameras to capture the changing landscapes caused by global climate change. Acclaimed National Geographic photographer James Balog was once a skeptic about climate change. 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.
