“This is the memory of the landscape. That landscape is gone. Never be seen again in the history of the civilization and its stored right here in this memory stick.” –James Balog, Chasing Ice
Please join GRID Alternatives on March 29 at 7pm, at the New Parkway Theater in Oakland for a screening of the Emmy Award-winning documentary Chasing Ice in partnership with the New Parkway’s Doc Night series. Chasing Ice is the story of National Geographic photographer James Balog’s quest to document the Arctic’s retreating glaciers to deliver powerful evidence of climate change to our carbon-powered planet. Hailed by Time Out as “awe-inspiring, terrifying,” and “transcendently beautiful,” Balog’s time lapse video captures dramatic, irrefutable proof that artic ice is disappearing at breathtaking rate. Come meet GRID supporters, volunteers and staff and experience this incredible film, that “deserves to be seen and felt on the big screen,” according to Chasing Ice fan Robert Redford. Better yet, proceeds from ticket sales go towards supporting GRID!
Stick around after the film for discussion with GRID staff and volunteers on ways we can all support renewable power in our communities! Get your tickets here!!
