    About the film:

    Glacial Balance takes us from Colombia to Argentina, getting to know those first affected by the melting glacial reserve. Along the way, scientists give us a perspective on what is happening in the natural world, and the chain reaction effect these disappearing glaciers are having worldwide. The film offers the viewer a chance to visit some of Earth’s most distant, inaccessible, and spectacularly beautiful landscapes and hear, in the local's own words, the human impacts of a climate out of control.

    About the filmmaker:

    Ethan Steinman is an Emmy-nominated filmmaker, Director of feature documentaries “Glacial Balance” and “Tesoros Descartados” as well as original content for adidas, Major League Soccer, CNN, AJE and Dremel. The Seattle-based filmmaker alternates his time between producing new content, holding screenings and classroom discussions of his films, and conducting his original college and university workshop “Documenting Science: How to Shoot Usable Video of your Research”. For more information on his documentary, see: http://www.glacialbalance.com
