Through the Lens: Chasing Ice

11-29_chasing_ice.jpg

When photographer James Balog first headed to the Arctic for National Geographic in 2005, he says he was a skeptic about climate change. What he saw there though put his career on a new course. Balog is the founder of the Extreme Ice Survey – a project that captures visually dramatic manifestations of climate change. Thursday, Balog and filmmaker Jeff Orlowski join us to talk about the stunning documentary "Chasing Ice," which follows James Balog as he risks his life to document the impact of warming temperatures on the world's glaciers.

On Wednesday, December 5th at 7:00 p.m. RadioWest and the Utah Film Center present a free screening of CHASING ICE at the Salt Lake City Public Library [map]. It's part of our Through the Lens documentary film series. Seats are available on a first-come basis, so plan on arriving early. Click here for more information.

CHASING ICE opens in Salt Lake City on Friday, November 30. Find a showing near you.
