their successful expeditions in Karakorum and the Caucasus, Fabiano Ventura and
his researcher team's mission continues in the exploration of the world's major
glaciers and the toll of climate change on them. The glaciers of Alaska are
their latest destination. Placing historical photographs taken by explorers
during late 19th and early 20th century expeditions
side-by-side with Ventura's present-day images of the same sites, the film demonstrates
the precarious state of health of these moving rivers of ice.
