About the Film

Acclaimed National Geographic photographer James Balog is an extreme person. So when his climate skepticism gives way to a commitment to documenting the mass extinction of glaciers around the Arctic, he's extreme about that too. He and his team - The Extreme Ice Survey - set up time-lapse cameras on Arctic cliff faces, then check back annually to grab the data. Year after year, the photos they capture tell the story of a planet - our home! - warming fast; the glaciers and ice mountains retreat before our eyes. We also witness the heroic lengths Balog will go to capture this story. Brutal weather, four knee surgeries, extended periods away from his family: the guy won't quit. Which is lucky for us because the photos, and this film, are credited by many former climate deniers as the wake-up call they needed. Beautiful, captivating, disturbing, eye-opening, Balog's photos were captured from 2005-2009 and this film by Jeff Orlowski was released in 2012, and yet the urgency of this story is greater than ever.
