Premiering in Finland at the World Village Festival, Into the Ice follows director Lars Henrik Ostenfeld on his travels with three pioneering glaciologists, Alun Hubbard, Dorthe Dahl-Jensen and Jason Box, on their expeditions into the inland ice of Greenland. The visually stunning documentary shows Ostenfeld and Hubbard descend 180 metres into the ice to find out how much meltwater there is in the glacier and to better understand the consequences of climate change.
The film tells us about the deep secrets of the future hidden within the ice sheet in Greenland. The melting of polar ice caps may result in an enormous rise in sea levels and have major consequences for the world. Into the Ice world-premiered this spring at the Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival CPH:DOX.
