Chasing Ice

A few years ago I saw  MICHELANGELO  ANTONIONI's Beyond the Cloud. Mesmerized by the film, I read That Bowling Alley on the Tiber: Tales of a Director. It was in this book where I found out that Antonioni predicted a disaster caused by Global Warming and the erosion of glaciers in Alaska. Later Stanley Kubrick made an unfinished film "Artificial Intelligence" showing the extinction of  humans and how Manhattan is buried under several hundred feet of glacial ice.

Tonight I listened to James balog who talked about documenting the erosion of glaciers in Switzerland, Greenland, Iceland, and Alaska  in Bill Moyers and Company.

Watch  the OFFICIAL TRAILER for 2012 Sundance Award-Winning film "Chasing Ice," opening in theaters starting November 2012.
