Traveling with a team of young adventurers across the brutal Arctic, acclaimed National Geographic photographer James Balog risks his career and his well-being in pursuit of the biggest story facing humanity. As the climate change debate polarizes America, and the intensity of natural disasters ramps up globally, 'Chasing Ice' depicts a heroic photojournalist on a mission to deliver hope to a fragile planet. Through his Extreme Ice Survey, Balog, once a skeptic, discovers undeniable evidence of our changing planet. The film employs revolutionary time-lapse cameras to capture a multi-year record of the world's glaciers.
