Renowned photographer James Balog (Chasing Ice, The Cove) uses his camera to reveal how environmental change is affecting the lives of everyday Americans. Following the four classical elements — air, earth, fire, and water — to frame his journey, Balog explores wildfires, hurricanes, sea level rise, coal mining, and the changes in the air we breathe. With compassion and heart, this film tells an urgent story while giving inspiration for a more balanced relationship between humanity and nature.

Q&A immediately following screening with Photographer James Balog.
