BLUE HILL – Peninsula Peace & Justice will screen Chasing Ice  at 7 p.m. on Friday, December 27, on the Pretty Big Screen of the Howard Room at Blue Hill Public Library. 

Chasing Ice documents work by distinguished National Geographic shutterbug James Balog and his team. Over months and years of repeated expeditions to Greenland, Iceland, Alaska and Montana, they detailed effects of global climate change through stop-frame photography.

As part of the Extreme Ice Survey, compiling data since 2007, the film-making team led by Jeff Orlowski organized footage from recent years that Roger Ebert called “heart-stopping.” The film shows arctic landscapes and global waters being transformed, changing in turn the air we breathe and the lands we inhabit.

Viewers will see dramatic changes over a period of months condensed into moments. The film-makers and scientists of the Survey explain the risks and challenges behind these images and what they mean for our future.

This film was shown at the White House on Earth Day 2013 and has won numerous awards, especially for outstanding visual achievement.

Free, including refreshments, and very much open to the public. Discussion may follow this 75-minute movie, for those who choose to stay. For info, call 664-0742.
