North America’s five Great Lakes – Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario – contain a staggering twenty percent of all the freshwater on the planet. 4K resolution digital cinema cameras visit this shared Canadian and American resource that holds a timely and telling story of the profound impact people have had on the very environment they cherish and depend upon.
Formed by ice, filled by ice, and often covered with ice, the Great Lakes encapsulate human exploration, migration, and development. PROJECT: ICE views North America’s freshwater inland ocean through the prism of ice, from the crossroads of history, science and climate change.
Ice sits at the heart of it all. PROJECT: ICE reveals an indisputable record of increasing water temperatures and strikingly diminished ice cover. It’s an environmental and economic wake up call from the heartland of the United States and Canada.
