Something you may not want to miss Thursday 7th to Saturday 9th February. Chasing ice at the Ipswich Film Theatre
Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s 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. The story of National Geographic photographer James Balog who set up the Extreme Ice Survey to document melting glaciers, Chasing Ice is a stark and graphic reminder of the effects of global warming. After developing and testing equipment that would survive in some of the most hostile environments in the world, Balog and his team set up 26 time lapse cameras around the Arctic Circle to take photos over a 3 year period. The result is some of the most jaw-dropping imagery you’ll ever see.
