‘Chasing Ice’ screens at Cozmic

“Chasing Ice” is the next film to be featured in the series co-sponsored by the Sierra Club and Coalition for Change at the Cozmic Café.

The first film in September, “Last Call at the Oasis,” packed the room so there will be two showings of “Chasing Ice” on Wednesday, Oct. 9 and 16.

“The community response was great,” observed Patty Wilson of Coalition for Change. “We were happy to welcome several high school students who were earning extra credit for watching the film. These are important films so I hope students will continue to come.”

“We are expecting an even greater crowd for our next film,” commented Bob Johnson of the Sierra Club. “Chasing Ice” is the story of one man’s mission to gather undeniable evidence of climate change using time-lapsed cameras. His videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a heartbreaking rate.

“Chasing Ice” has won more than 30 awards world wide, including the Sundance Film Festival award for Excellence in Cinematography.

At the heart of this multi-layer film is a human interest story. Environmental photographer, James Balog, was beset by equipment malfunction, harsh arctic conditions and painful knee injuries. Yet he persevered on his quest for several years.

It is also a scientific study called the Extreme Ice Survey with all the facts, methodology and observations that you would expect of such a survey.

Finally, the main message of climate change is delivered through visually stunning photography, at once beautiful and horrifying.

“This is a movie you don’t want to miss,” said Wilson.

The film will be shown in the upstairs entertainment room at the Cozmic Cafe, 594 Main St. in Placerville. Seating will begin at 6 p.m. with the movie starting at 6:30 p.m.

A donation of $3 is suggested to help cover the cost of the room rental.

The Cozmic Café is popular for its natural and organic selections. Food service ends at 6 p.m. so come early if you wish to grab something to eat or drink before the show.

The film scheduled for Nov. 13 is “We’re Not Broke.”

It tells the story and clearly explains how U.S. corporations dodge paying millions of dollars in income taxes. It was nominated for awards at the Milan International Film Festival as well as the Sundance Film Festival.
