A LucВ Jacquet Retrospective
Presented with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy
Drilling down the Antarctic ice fields in the 1950s, French glaciologist Claude Lorius brought about a sweeping change in our vision of the world when he discovered the effects of climate change. Oscar-winning director Luc Jacquet presents clips from his new film about Loriusв’ study of the glaciers, offering new, inspiring means for transforming manв’s imprint on its environment. He will also show short films from his multi-media project of the same name. A cinematic multi-media experience in the footsteps of French glaciologist Claude Lorius. Directed by Luc Jacquet.
