The Sustainability Documentary and Dinner Film Series presents a screening of “Chasing Ice.” In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, 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 within him that would put his career and his very well-being at risk.
“Chasing Ice” is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet. Within months of that first trip to Iceland, the photographer conceived the boldest expedition of his life: The Extreme Ice Survey. With a band of young adventurers in tow, Balog began deploying revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers.
Sponsored by the Denison Sustainability Fellows and the Office of Sustainability, the film series is open to members of the community who are interested in environmental and social issues. Participants are invited to dine in the President’s Room in Huffman Hall beginning at 5 p.m. The film screening will start at 5:30 p.m. The first 30 people to arrive receive a free dinner.Address: Huffman Dining Hall, President's Room, 450 Chapel Drive, Granville, OH 43023Open to Public: YesSponsored By: Sustainability Fellows, Office of SustainabilityPrice/Tickets: FREEEvent Contact: Jeremy King, 740-587-8680
