Yo 3C'ers!

Below is information about the Sierra Club's Wild & Scenic Film Festival
2013 and a screening of *Chasing Ice*, both found on the MN350 calendar.

I'll be the Event Host at the Wild & Scenic Film Festival for the Human
Rights/Social Justice Films and Speakers Meetup group. At my suggestion,
the Minneapolis Movie Monsters Meetup group has also posted the Festival.
So far, ten people from the two groups have signed up to see it. It would
be great to have some Climate Change Changers there as well.

I also hope to see *Chasing Ice*, though that is less certain because I
don't own a car and Southdale Library is more than an hour away from my
Phillips neighborhood apartment by bus. If anyone else is planning to
attend and can offer me a ride (at least part of the way home), please let
me know. Thanks.

*Chasing Ice* at Southdale Library

In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog
headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic: to
capture images to help tell the story of the Earth's changing climate. Even
with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate
change. But that first trip north opened his eyes to the biggest story in
human history and sparked a challenge within him that would put his career
and his very well-being at risk.

*Chasing Ice* is the story of one man's mission to change the tide of
history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet. Within
months of that first trip to Iceland, the photographer conceived the
boldest expedition of his life: The Extreme Ice Survey. With a band of
young adventurers in tow, Balog began deploying revolutionary time-lapse
cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the
world's changing glaciers.

As the debate polarizes America and the intensity of natural disasters
ramps up globally, Balog finds himself at the end of his tether. Battling
untested technology in subzero conditions, he comes face to face with his
own mortality. It takes years for Balog to see the fruits of his labor. His
hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient
mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate
