Brew Views: Chasing Ice

Baby, it’s cold outside.

National Geographic photographer James Balog might be called the innovator of ice porn. In the documentary Chasing Ice, he sets out to document melting glaciers around the world, selflessly striving to capture images that will change dominant opinions about global warming. As he and his team struggle to install cameras under harsh Arctic conditions, the film illustrates the role of art as an awareness-raising tool. Balog’s photos, too, are overwhelmingly beautiful, and with its no-bullshit approach, Chasing Ice makes clear how losing glaciers will destroy our study of natural history.
