ANTARCTICA: ICE AND SKY

Friday, January 27, 2017

9:30 PM Detroit Film Theatre

(France/2015—directed by Luc Jacquet)

From the Oscar® winning director of March of the Penguins comes a fascinating portrait of glaciologist Claude Lorius, whose groundbreaking research in Antarctica revealed the first clear evidence of man-made global climate change. Visiting Antarctica as a student in 1955, Lorius went on to participate in twenty-two expeditions during his career, braving unforgiving conditions and personal challenges that were rewarded by an astonishing discovery; by studying deep drills of ice cores, tiny air bubbles, suspended in ice, reveal the composition of Earth’s atmosphere over nearly a million years. Archival footage and newly captured drone images converge at a point where memoir, adventure and science meet, in a story told as an urgent call to action. Closing Night Selection, Cannes Film Festival. (89 minutes)

“This is a powerful testament of considerable impact.” –Mark Kermode, The Guardian
