CHASING TIME

JEFF ORLOWSKI-YANG AND OTHERS WILL JOIN US AFTERWARDS FOR A Q&A

The team behind Chasing Ice reunites for one final mission to close out the Extreme Ice Survey project: an unprecedented 15-year photographic record of the melting glaciers.

If a single photo can inspire change, how influential are a million images? Over the course of the 15-year Extreme Ice Survey project, photographer James Balog and his team brought some of the world’s first and most compelling visual evidence of climate change to the global stage as he depicted the rapid melting of glaciers around the world. Thoughtfully helmed by acclaimed director Jeff Orlowski-Yang (Chasing Ice, Chasing Coral, The Social Dilemma) and first-time filmmaker Sarah Keo, Chasing Time is a meditative exploration of time and mortality, following James and his crew as they bring the decades-long project to a close, cataloging more than one million images in the process. The short documentary reunites James and the Emmy-award-winning team behind Chasing Ice to capture the end of the epic undertaking and spotlight the power of an intergenerational effort to seed hope and inspire action toward a sustainable future. A beautiful tribute to the power of images and the importance of mentorship, the team examines the legacy their efforts have made on the world.

“YOU NEED TO SEE THIS ON A SCREEN AS BIG AS POSSIBLE. I DON’T SAY THAT LIGHTLY, I SAY THAT BECAUSE THE IMAGES HERE WILL KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF.” —STEVE KOPIAN, UNSEEN FILMS
