Chasing Ice - Weeks State Park Event
(07:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

The Weeks State Park Association is delighted to offer a free showing of the movie "Chasing Ice” at the Rialto Theater in Lancaster.  In 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. “Chasing Ice” is the story of Balog’s quest to document evidence of our changing planet. The result was his Extreme Ice Survey using time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture multi-year records of the world’s changing glaciers. Balog’s hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and ancient mountains of ice in motion.


We are indeed fortunate to have Dr. Tad Pfeffer on hand to introduce this film.  Dr. Pfeffer is a team member of the "Chasing Ice" project.  He is a glaciologist at the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research and professor of civil, environmental and architectural engineering at the University of Colorado at Boulder.  He is visiting in New Hampshire this summer and has graciously offered to visit with us during the showing of the film in Lancaster.
