Event Details

Cool off with a viewing of “Chasing Ice”, a filmography of the retreat of the glaciers. This film event will be hosted by your local UF/IFAS Extension office and sponsored by the Friends of Brooker Creek Preserve.

This film is rated PG-13. Parental Guidance is suggested for children under 13 years of age.

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.

As the debate polarizes America and the intensity of natural disasters ramps up globally, Balog finds himself at the end of his tether. Battling untested technology in subzero conditions, he comes face to face with his own mortality. It takes years for Balog to see the fruits of his labor. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate. Chasing Ice depicts a photographer trying to deliver evidence and hope to our carbon-powered planet.

The film will be followed up with a panel discussion composed of climate science profssionals who will be there to answer any questions you may have. Icy treats will be available too!
