Although different, the Andes Mountains and the Amazon forests are part of the same system: the water born thousands of miles up the top of mountains runs through and floods the plains feeding the most bio diverse forests on the planet. Decision makers, leaders, and often, the inhabitants of the Amazon basin, do not consider or are aware of this relationship. Natural resources are used impacting ecosystems and the people who depend on them, either upstream or down.

Doc | 2012 | 28min | Belgium
How international oil companies intend to expand tar sands mining around the globe – focusing on the case of Madagascar.

Currently, we have over 88,000 chemicals in our system of commerce, and some of those are going straight into our bodies, and even more importantly, our unborn children as well. Due to this constant exposure, we have over 200 synthetic industrial compounds that are interacting with our cells every single day. Until recently, modern science really didn’t understand what that could mean for all of us in the long run, but that dynamic is changing. Unacceptable Levels” opens the door to conversations about the chemical burden our bodies are being exposed to, so we can make informed decisions and make a difference.

In the spring of 2005, National Geographic photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change and a cynic about the nature of academic research. But that first trip north opened his eyes to the biggest story in human history and sparked a challenge within him that would put his career and his very well-being at risk. Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet.
