Birthday Canyon, Greenland ice sheetA Leytonstone Festival Event

A chillingly beautiful depiction of the harsh yet fragile world of Arctic icescapes in the throes of rapid climate change, as seen through the enquiring eye of photographer/film maker James Balog. Mr. Balog makes the journey from climate change sceptic to climate aware, not through the persuasions of any scientific argument, but via his own observations on site in the Arctic. This man could have been you or me: it is the film’s emphasis on the totally personal aspect of Balog’s discovery, together with his subsequent change of viewpoint which sets this award-winning documentary apart.

Join James Balog in his journey of exploration and fact-finding and make up your own mind about  it all.

Doors open at 6.30 for refreshments. The film will start at 7pm, followed by a discussion.
