Director LARS OSTENFELD (Denmark/Germany 2022) 85 min
The Greenland ice sheet is the second largest body of ice in the world, and as we now know that ice is melting at an alarming rate with major global consequences. But how quickly are sea levels rising, and how much time do we have left to change course? Lars Ostenfeld’s film speaks directly to this overriding crisis of our time, but Into the Ice is so much more than just a climate report. It’s also a visually stunning adventure, following three of the world’s leading glaciologists as they explore the deep secrets of our future and gather the scientific evidence we need to understand it. Accompanying the scientists as they charge boldly into treacherous winds, icy wastelands, and the depths of glacier moulins (vast icy holes seemingly without end), this beautifully immersive film captures the sense of being there — while there’s still a there to be.
