Follow National Geographic photographer James Balog across the Arctic documenting the world’s changing glaciers and gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet.
Central to this film is the belief that we cannot divorce civilisation from nature. This vision is rendered in James Balog’s extraordinary photographs of ice and his compilation of video footage of glaciers melting at an unnatural rate. The film argues that global warming promises to turn sublime beauty on its head.
“This portrait of a man on a mission moves us, not by showing us what we’ve already lost, but what’s still at stake.”

Venue: Port Phillip Ecocentre, Cnr Blessington & Herbert Streets, St Kilda(in the St Kilda Botanical Gardens)
