If you’re a fan of the eco-themed programming on Robert Redford’s Sundance Channel – home to Isabella Rossellini’s Green Porno series and Josh Dorfman’s The Lazy Environmentalist — then you’ll definitely want to assume the couch potato position on May 25th at 8:30 pm when they air the full-length documentary Burning Ice.
In the movie, filmmaker Pete Gilbert documents the most recent voyage to Disko Bay as a motley crew of 40 different scientists, musical recording artists, writers and photographers — including KT Tunstall, Vanessa Carlton, Jarvis Cocker, Moby, Laurie Anderson, Robyn Hitchcock and Brian Eno — witness first hand how climate change is unfolding in the ‘real world’.
Their collective perspectives have fueled a series of artistic, musical and written works that are both creatively and ecologically inspired, including a coffee table book, various touring art exhibits and a UN award-winning website.
To tide you over until next week, take a look at the Cape Farewell crew’s footage of a polar bear mother swimming alongside of her two cubs just a few feet away from their vessel below. And don’t forget to pencil Tuesday, May 25, into your schedule as boob-tube worthy!
