ICE AND THE SKY (French: La Glace et le Ciel) is a French documentary film directed by Luc Jacquet (March of the Penguins) about the work of Claude Lorius, who began studying Antarctic ice in 1957, and, in 1965, was the first scientist to be concerned about global warming. The film was selected to close the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.
Luc Jacquet brings to the screen the story of Claude Lorius, who set out to study the icescapes of Antarctica in 1957. He tells of our planet’s history and of our future - a future inextricably linked with mankind’s impact on our planet. A unique - profoundly human - scientific adventure, this is the story of a lifetime devoted to pursuing the vital secrets of existence hidden at the heart of a frozen world.
