The Tiburon Film Society will present the documentary “Project: Ice” directed by William Kleinert on Tuesday, Jan. 6, 2015 at 6 p.m.
The film views North America’s fresh water inland ocean through the prism of ice, from the crossroads of history, science and climate change. Formed by ice, filled by ice, often covered by ice, the Great Lakes encapsulate human exploration, migration, development and where we’re headed.
North America’s five Great Lakes contain a staggering 20 percent of all the fresh water on the planet. Lake Superior by itself holds 10 percent of the Earth’s fresh water.
“Project: Ice” explores this shared Canadian-American resource that holds a timely and telling story of geology, human movement, population growth, industrialization, cultural development, recreation and the profound impact people have had on the very environment they cherish and depend upon.
Ice sits at the heart of it all.
The screening will be held at the Bay Model located at 2100 Bridgeway in Sausalito. Admission is free and open to the public.
