A beautiful journey back to the historic moment where we first found evidence of a human footprint in climate change.

Ice and Sky follows the story of Antarctic explorer and scientist Claude Lorius, whose research into ice core drilling has played a pivotal role in establishing the scientific basis of global warming. In this visually stunning and meditative film, Lorius, now in his 80’s, returns to the frozen continent with Luc Jaquet (the Oscar winning Director of March of the Penguins) to deliver a warning to humanity.
