Chasing Time

39 mins


After bringing some of the world’s first and most striking visual evidence of our changing planet to the fore, photographer James Balog returns to Iceland to remove the last timelapse camera of the Extreme Ice Survey. Accompanied by the film team behind Chasing Ice (Mountainfilm 2012), the group reunites on a final mission to close out the project that first bonded them together: an extraordinary effort that has resulted in an unprecedented 15-year photographic record of the melting glaciers. Featuring intimate interviews set against stunning landscape photography, time-manipulated footage and never-before-seen archival film, Chasing Time (Mountainfilm 2024) is a meditative exploration of time and mortality, spotlighting the power that intergenerational relationships hold in seeding hope and inspiration toward a sustainable future.
