Ethan Steinman 2013
Film Screening with an Original Introduction by Prof Mathias Vuille
Glacial Balance takes us from Colombia to Argentina, getting to know those who are the first to be affected by the melting glacial reserve, the canaries in the mine. Along the way, we are accompanied by scientists who give us a perspective on what is happening in the natural world, and from that, we learn of the chain reaction effect these disappearing glaciers are having worldwide. The film offers the viewer an opportunity to hear, in the locals’ own words, the human impacts of a climate out of control.
