'CHASING ICE' captures largest glacier calving ever filmed - OFFICIAL VIDEO 5
This rare footage has gone on record as the largest glacier calving event ever captured on film, by the 2016 Guiness Book of World Records.

On May 28, 2008, Adam LeWinter and Director Jeff Orlowski filmed a historic breakup at the Ilulissat Glacier in Western Greenland. The calving event lasted for 75 minutes and the glacier retreated a full mile across a calving face three miles wide. The height of the ice is about 3,000 feet, 300-400 feet above water and the rest below water.


Chasing Ice won the award for Excellence in Cinematography at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and a 2013 Emmy Award for Outstanding Nature Programming. It has won over 40 awards at festivals worldwide, and was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song, "Before My Time" by J. Ralph featuring Scarlett Johansson and Joshua Bell.

Even with Manhattan overlaid on top of the ice, I still can't put it into perspective.

This is one of the most incredible things I've ever seen. I'm also very grateful that there isn't any talking, and especially, NO MUSIC playing during this extraordinary event...

1:54 looks like a giant whale breaching and diving. You can even see what looks like an eye. Easy to understand why ancient people would have seen this as a god-like entity.

I don't think my brain is letting me see it in its true scale. Even after the overlay of Manhattan was shown, it still looks smaller than that...

That was absolutely incredible. I was in complete awe. I am also grateful that no music was played over the film. Just hearing things rupture and break apart was a new experience for me.

How come no one address"s the pole shift phenomena.Magnetic north has shifted by over 1100 km since 1980 and no one pays attention. We are over due for a pole reversal and it is coming but it gets no attention.I guess there is no money to be made off of it.
