New Movie Reveals Largest Artic Iceberg Break-Up Ever Filmed
A film debuting this month captures live footage of the trillon tonnes of ice evaporating from Greenland and Antarctic. ‘Chasing Ice’ portrays first-hand the effect climate change is having on the earth’s biggest ice sheets.
“It’s like watching ‘Manhattan breaking apart in front of your eyes’, says filmmaker James Balog. He’s describing the largest iceberg calving ever filmed, as featured in his movie, Chasing Ice. After weeks of waiting, the filmakers witnessed 7.4 cubic km of ice crashing off the Ilulissat glacier in Greenland. Chasing Ice, released in the UK on Friday, follows James Balog’s mission to document Arctic ice being melted by climate change.”
