Stunning and haunting, Chasing Ice is an essential view

With weather very much in the news at the moment, the timing of a film being shown at The Chrysalis Theatre this Sunday couldn’t be better.

The Oscar nominated documentary Chasing Ice is the work of acclaimed photographer James Balog.

His use of time-lapse cameras has captured a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers, in a delivery as stunning as it is shocking.

The Co-operative Membership is hosting, in partnership with the MK branch of Friends of the Earth and Transition MK.

Post-film a talk about climate change will be given.

Sabrina Crouch is The Co-operative’s membership officer for our area.

“This award winning film has been screened at The White House, the US Congress and the United Nations and we are delighted to be able to bring it to Milton Keynes,” she said.

“James Balog has been a leading photographer for three decades and was once skeptical about climate change until he saw first hand its devastating effects – this film captures those shocking and hauntingly beautiful scenes.”

The Chrysalis Theatre at Camphill is your hosting venue for the free screening, which starts at 2.15pm.

Places are limited though, so reserve your space by calling MK 361500.

> The OU Film Society hosts the 2011 Spanish offering Even The Rain on Wednesday evening.

It shows at the OU Lecture Theatre on Walton Campus, from 6.30pm.
