Chasing Ice

Chasing Ice Review

One of the best environmental docs of the year and unfortunately timely in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Chasing Ice is more of a personal story of man interacting with nature that's refreshingly free of didactic lecturing on the subject of climate change. It's one thing to hear about how glaciers are melting. It's another thing to actually see it like you do here.

Dork Shelf catches up with first time director Jeff Orlowski about his Hot Docs favourite (and suddenly very important) climate change documentary Chasing Ice and we talk a bit about the physical demands of filming on and around glaciers and his relationship with National Geographic photographer and subject, James Balog.
