Chasing Ice’ Documentary Film to be shown at the St. Mane Theatre


Wed, May 1st, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

Lanesboro, Minn. – The Third Friday Film Series will kick off the 2013 season with the documentary film ‘Chasing Ice’ on Friday, May 17 at 7:30 p.m. at the St. Mane Theatre. Presented by Lanesboro Arts Center, the Third Friday Film Series will focus on the theme of Energy this year; films will be shown May-October at the St. Mane Theatre (except the July film which will be shown at Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center): May 17, June 21, July 19, August 16, September 20, and October 18. Following each screening will be a discussion led by a local expert on topics relating to the film. Admission to Third Friday Film Night is free. Donations are appreciated to help offset film showing rights. The St. Mane Theatre is located at 206 Parkway Avenue N in Lanesboro, Minn.

‘Chasing Ice’ is the winner of 35+ awards, ranging from “Best Adventure Film” (Boulder Film Festival) to “Best Documentary” (Big Sky Film Festival) to “Excellence in Cinematography Award: US Documentary” (Sundance Film Festival). Directed by American filmmaker Jeff Orlowski, the beginnings of ‘Chasing Ice’ came about in the spring of 2005, when 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. Within months of that first trip to Iceland, the photographer conceived the boldest expedition of his life: The Extreme Ice Survey. With a band of young adventurers in tow, Balog began deploying revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion. More info at www.chasingice.com.
