RadioWest and Utah Film Center have partnered to present the best in documentary filmmaking. We talk with established and new directors who are changing the way audiences see the world and then screen their films.

Chasing Ice

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. Friday, Doug talks to Balog and filmmaker Jeff Orlowski about the stunning documentary "Chasing Ice." It follows James Balog as he risks his life to document the impact of warming temperatures on the world's glaciers. (Rebroadcast)

Last year, RadioWest and the Utah Film Center screened "Chasing Ice" to a packed theater in Salt Lake City.
