Another sure standout is the designated featured documentary, Colorado filmmaker Jeff Orlowski's Chasing Ice, which follows Colorado-based nature photographer James Balog to the Arctic for his Extreme Ice Survey, a strenuous journey to document the effects of global warming on glaciers, using time-lapse cameras over a period of years. Chasing Ice screens at 7 p.m. Saturday, September 8 at the American Mountaineering Center.
And artists won't want to miss the powerful doc Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry, the work of first-time director Alison Kalyman that documents the artist and political dissident's ongoing battle with the Chinese government.
