Directed by Jeff Orlowski Inspired by a trip to the Arctic, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog began deploying revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world's changing glaciers. As the debate polarizes America and the intensity of natural disasters ramps up globally, Balog finds himself battling untested technology in subzero conditions and even facing his own mortality. His mission results in a series of hauntingly beautiful videos that compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate.
