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.
