Project: ICE

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Formed by ice, filled by ice and often covered with ice, the Great Lakes encapsulate human exploration, migration, development and where we’re headed. PROJECT: ICE views North America’s fresh water inland ocean through the prism of ice, from the crossroads of history, science and climate change. 
North America’s five Great Lakes – Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario, contain a staggering twenty percent of all the fresh water on the planet. Consider that encompasses every river, stream, lake, and glacial ice sheet on Earth, and you quickly grasp their scale, volume and significance. Lake Superior by itself holds ten percent of Earth’s fresh water. 

4K resolution digital cinema cameras visit this shared Canadian and American resource that holds a timely and telling story of geology, human movement, population growth, shipping, navigation, industrialization, cultural development, recreation and the profound impact people have had on the very environment they cherish and depend upon. 

Ice sits at the heart of it all. 

Ultimately, PROJECT: ICE reveals the “canary in a coal mine” role being played by Great Lakes ice over the past 40 years, an indisputable record of increasing water temperatures and strikingly diminished ice cover. 40 million Americans and Canadians live within the Great Lakes Basin. Communities, industries and visitors who vacation and recreate will all feel profound effects of this change. It’s an environmental and economic wake-up call from the heartland of the United States and Canada, not some remote and unpopulated pole of the planet.
