The first film is a preview of David Weintraub’s soon-to-be documentary film about sea turtles and human culture, “Call of the Ancient Mariner.”
The film project started “as a personal quest to learn about sea turtles along the coast of South Carolina, and it became a study of ecology, environmentalism, culture and human nature,” Weintraub said. “It explores the turtle’s quest, parallel to our own, as we both learn to share this increasingly smaller blue marble in the universe.”
The feature film is “Chasing Ice,” an adrenaline-infused story of a team of photographers that capture the first visual evidence of climate change through time-lapse photography of disappearing glaciers. Since premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in 2012, it has proven to substantially shift opinions about climate change.
Acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog was once a skeptic about climate change. Traveling with a team of young adventurers across the brutal Arctic, he risks his career and his wellbeing in pursuit of the biggest story facing humanity. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion. Chasing Ice depicts a heroic photojournalist on a mission to deliver fragile hope to our carbon-powered planet.
