Glacier Flow

The gradual warming of our planet – an amount of 1 - 4 degrees – is causing our glaciers and ice caps to melt at an unprecedented rate. The Vanishing Ice explores the function of our glaciers, giving a regional, national and international picture of fresh water supplies.

Fascinating interviews with many of the world’s specialists on water, including activists, scientists and writers, are intercut with dramatic footage shot from deep within crevasses and high above the icefields. Though their reflections on how to solve the water issues are diverse, they all agree that the world is facing a crisis on this issue of fresh water scarcity.
