We’re teaming up with Orkney International Science Festival to bring you an Oscar short-listed film and winner of 23 International Film Festival awards including Sundance, Full Frame, Hot Docs and River Run.
‘Chasing Ice’ is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate. Chasing Ice depicts a photographer trying to deliver evidence and hope to our carbon-powered planet.
★★★★ The Guardian – ‘If any film can convert the climate-change sceptics, Chasing Ice would be it: here, seeing really is believing’.
★★★★ Time Out – ‘They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but in this instance, a few moments of jaw-dropping time-lapse footage pretty much eclipse every other environmental documentary we’ve seen before’.
★★★★ The List – ‘….an absorbing and vital watch’.
★★★★ Total Film – ‘Visually spectacular montages of ice floes receding that will make you gasp and move you to tears’.
