The film follows Balog and his assistants as they deploy cutting-edge time-lapse cameras in unforgiving arctic climates to document disappearing glaciers over the course of several years. It's "full of stunning images in addition to being timely ... as watchable as it is important," according to The New York Times. The film will be followed by a panel discussion with the film's producer and director, Stanford alumnus Jeff Orlowski, as well as Root and Stanford Woods Fellows Noah Diffenbaugh (Environmental Earth System Science), Michael Wara (Law). 

Root is also featured in Bidder 70, a documentary about a college student who used civil disobedience to disrupt a controversial oil and gas lease auction of Utah wilderness land.
