201789 minutes

From the Oscar-winning director of March of the Penguins, ANTARCTICA: ICE AND SKY recounts the remarkable life's journey of Claude Lorius, the first scientist to discover conclusive evidence of man-made climate change. Beginning with his first trip to the Antarctic in 1955, and persisting over the course of six decades and twenty two polar expeditions, Lorius — the winner of the Blue Planet Prize, the Nobel prize for environmental sciences — overcame brutal weather conditions and interpersonal challenges to achieve his groundbreaking glacier exploration, discovering climate secrets dating back to the first Ice Age in pockets of air trapped deep beneath the planet’s surface. Featuring stunning cinematography and incredible archival footage from the frozen continent, Antarctica: Ice and Sky is an epic tale of science and adventure, as well as a stirring personal testament and call to action.
