Join a group viewing of the climate change documentary “The Human Element” and Q&A with photographer James Balog.

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day—Wednesday, April 22, 2020—with a film screening and special conversation with James Balog, a photographer whose work illustrating climate change is displayed in MSI’s temporary exhibit, Extreme Ice.

Join a group viewing of Balog’s newest documentary, The Human Element, in a live webcast hosted by the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago. The film will be followed by a Q+A with Balog and Dr. Patricia Ward, MSI director of science exhibitions and partnerships.

The Human Element captures the lives of everyday Americans on the front lines of climate change. With rare compassion and heart, The Human Element relays captivating stories from coast-to-coast, inspiring us to reevaluate our relationship with the natural world. Balog is the founder and director of the Earth Vision Institute and Extreme Ice Survey (EIS), the most wide-ranging, ground-based, photographic study of glaciers.
