2012 Sundance Film Festival winner to debut on NGC
National Geographic Channel announced that environmental feature film Chasing Ice, which won the Best Cinematography award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, will premiere on the channel throughout Asia on April 20, 2013, at 10pm HKT.
The world’s glaciers are one of nature’s most impressive and enduring backdrops – epic in size and grandeur. They are also a massive, undeniable casualty of climate change. Chasing Ice documents internationally-acclaimed photographer James Balog’s three-year quest to capture the glaciers in transformation. Placing 25 time-lapse cameras in Iceland, Greenland, Alaska and Montana, Balog’s lenses bear witness to the tension between the huge, enduring power of the glaciers and their ultimate fragility as they crumble piece-by-piece into the ocean.
Compressing years into 75 arresting minutes, the film offers a breath-taking – and haunting – visual retrospective of glaciers receding at unprecedented speeds and massive pieces of ice sheets breaking off into the ocean.
Chasing Ice will premiere in 171 countries as part of the Explorer Top 125 – one night each week throughout 2013 dedicated to the hot shots, the mavericks, and the best in their field who have devoted their lives to exploring the world around us and the ground-breaking discoveries that are making a difference.
