In the spring of 2005, National Geographic gave environmental photographer James Balog a challenging assignment: to capture images that tell the story of climate change. Balog spent years deploying time-lapse cameras across the Arctic to make a visual record of the earth's receding glaciers.

The results are captured in the film Chasing Ice. Years of changes are compressed into seconds in a visual display that Huffington Post reviewer Greg Reitman calls "hauntingly beautiful."

The Ohio Chasing Ice Tour is coming to the Gateway Film Center, 1550 North High Street on Friday, March 7 at 7 p.m. A free screening of Chasing Ice will be followed by a reception with food, drinks, and a Q&A session with the film's director, Jeff Orlowski.

Tickets can be picked up at the theater starting at 4 p.m. Limited tickets are available. You can RSVP here.

The goal of the tour is to create a movement that inspires the public to share their message with Ohio Congressman Pat Tiberi of the 12th Congressional District.

The Columbus event is sponsored by Ohio State's Byrd Polar Research Center, the Evangelical Environmental Network, Ohio Interfaith Power and Light, the Catholic Climate Covenant, Patagonia, and other local groups.
