Acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog was once a skeptic about climate change and a cynic about the nature of academic research. 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 photo-journalist on a mission to deliver fragile hope to our carbon‐powered planet.

Chasing Ice has won over 30 awards at film festivals around the world, including:

SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL – Excellence in Cinematography Award: US Documentary
The Environmental Media Association’s 22nd Annual BEST DOCUMENTARY AWARD.

From the Producer of the Academy Award Winning “The Cove” for Best Documentary (Feature) and the Producer of the Academy Award Winning “Saving Face” for Best Documentary (Short Subject).
