College presents screening of ‘Chasing Ice’

On Tuesday, April 16, Saint Joseph’s College will host a screening of “Chasing Ice,” the 2013 Oscar-nominated documentary on National Geographic photographer James Balog.

Directed by Jeff Orlowski, “Chasing Ice” follows Balog as he crosses the Arctic to deploy time-lapse cameras to document the record change of glaciers. The late Roger Ebert, in the Chicago Sun-Times, said the film  “… is heart-stopping in its coverage of the brave and risky attempt ….”

“Chasing Ice” will be shown on April 16, at 6:30 p.m., in the Viola George Auditorium, Harold Alfond Hall, at Saint Joseph’s Standish campus. The screening is free and open to the public.
