Duration: 85 mins
Description: INTO THE ICE is a journey of discovery to the vast masses of ice and the secret of our future that it is harboring. Director Lars Ostenfeld accompanies three of the world’s leading glaciologists on pioneering scientific expeditions to and into the Greenland ice sheet. Dorthe Dahl-Jensen, Jason Box and Alun Hubbard are all working to collect new crucial data that can help us answer some key questions of our time: how fast is the ice melting? How quickly are sea levels rising? How much time do we have left to change the course of these events? The scientists are caught in a dilemma: while they collect new evidence to an inconvenient truth, people in power are not prepared to take action to prevent the earth from dying. The film brings us breathtaking images from a place that soon will be lost as we know it now.
