Chasing Ice Screening and Q&A at Rosendale Theatre

The Rosendale Theatre will screen the award-winning documentary that captures proof of a changing planet through photographs by James Balog of National Geographic. Using self-installed, time-lapse cameras in 27 different remote sites, including Greenland, Iceland, Nepal, and Alaska, Balog captures glaciers shrinking at alarming rates, like 2.5 miles of an Alaskan glacier disappearing into the ocean over a two-year time frame. Balog, a climate change skeptic earlier in his career, says, “If I hadn’t seen it in pictures, I wouldn’t have believed it at all.”

The film will be followed by an audience Q&A with special guests each night, both live and via Skype on the big screen. Guests include Chasing Ice producer Paula DuPre’ Pesman; husband and wife Arctic research team Jessica Houston and Dr. Bruno Tremblay; New York State District 101 Assemblyman and Energy Committee Chair Kevin Cahill to talk about state efforts to reduce fossil fuel use; and a panel on local climate change action that includes Rosendale Environmental Chair Jennifer Metzger, Ann Guenther of the New Paltz-based Climate Action Coalition, Paul E. McGinniss of the New York Green Advocate and columnist for EcoWatch, and EcoWatch Founder Stefanie Penn Spear.

The New York Times called the film "Stunning…Timely…A solitary quest with global implications," and it won an Excellence in Cinematography award at the Sundance Film Festival. The film will screen at the Rosendale Theatre from Friday, December 14 to Sunday, December 16 at 7:15pm.
