chasing ice

i saw a movie the other day, a film made about a photographer who sets up 20 dslr cameras to shoot glaciers in Greenland, Iceland, Alaska, and Montana, timelapse shots collecting melting glacier images over four years.  the film was beautiful.

i think a good film is one that gives me a different sense of time. Chasing Ice did this well, in particular one scene sticks out in its impact of my sense of time. ..   

The photographer decides that there is one glacier that is going to fracture and he sends two of his assistants out into the area to sit with rolling movie cameras . They sit and wait staring at the frozen ice for 17 days
