For six weeks a National Geographic-sponsored expedition led by Jon Bowermaster explored the Antarctic Peninsula by sea kayak, sailboat, foot, and small plane, observing the fast changing evolution of Earth’s most remote places. Impacted by climate change—temperatures have warmed along the Peninsula faster than anywhere on the planet during the past 50 years—this part of Antarctica is also experiencing a boom in tourism and nations fighting over who owns what as its ice slowly disappears. Bowermaster’s new film Terra Antarctica, the latest in his Oceans 8 series of films documenting his exploration of the world’s oceans with sea kayaks, offers a one-of-a-kind look at Antarctica from a unique perspective: sea level.

The screening will be introduced by filmmaker and explorer Jon Bowermaster.
