Screening of the film, “Chasing Ice” on Monday, April 22nd at 1:30 and 7 PM at MCC Luecht Conference Center and sponsored by The Environmental Defenders of McHenry County.
“In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on assignment for National Geographic: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. 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 that would put his career and well-being at risk. Chasing Ice is the story of his mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of climate change. Using time-lapse cameras, his videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate.” www.chasingice.com
