Claude Lorius discovered his destiny at the age of 23 when he joined an expedition to the world’s southernmost continent in 1955, land essentially untouched by scientific experiment. Lorius would go on to participate in 22 polar expeditions, facing unforgiving conditions and brutal personal challenges in an effort to discover the planet’s secrets held in small bubbles of air deep beneath the surface. Through remarkable archival footage and stunning drone cinematography, Lorius revisits the part of the world he knows best and recounts his story, from his first tentative steps as a young glaciologist to the crowning achievement of his career, receiving the Blue Planet Prize in 2008. Equal parts contemplative memoir and ardent call to action, ICE AND THE SKY is the culmination of 60 years of discovery, an epic tale where science and adventure meet.
