Chasing Ice review

Jeff Orlowski explores the result of climate change

There can't be many people still resistant to the inconvenient truth of climate change.

But any that are should be made to see Jeff Orlowski’s eco-doc, which charts the efforts of National Geographic photographer James Balog to film time-lapse imagery of glacial retreat.

As this heroic campaigner battles harsh conditions and a bum knee to install 30 cameras across three continents, some may ask whether it’s worth the trouble.

They’ll soon be silenced by the jaw-dropping results: visually spectacular montages of ice floes receding that will make you gasp and move you to tears.
