ABOUT THE FILMS


How to Change the World

HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD

Dir. Jerry Rothwell / 109 min

How to Change the World chronicles the adventures of an eclectic group of young pioneers – Canadian hippie journalists, photographers, musicians, scientists, and American draft dodgers – who set out to stop Richard Nixon’s atomic bomb tests in Amchitka, Alaska, and end up creating the worldwide green movement.


Chasing Ice

CHASING ICE

Dir. Jeff Orlowski / 75 min

Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet.

In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change. But that first trip north opened his eyes to the biggest story in human history and sparked a challenge within him that would put his career and his very well-being at risk. With a band of young adventurers in tow, Balog conceived the boldest expedition of his life: The Extreme Ice Survey. Deploying revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic, he captured a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers.
