On May 28, 2008, Adam LeWinter and Director Jeff Orlowski filmed a historic breakup at the Ilulissat Glacier in Western Greenland. The event lasted for 75 minutes and the glacier retreated a full mile across a face three miles wide. The height of the ice is about 3,000 feet, 300-400 feet above water and the rest below water.
"Chasing Ice" won the award for Excellence in Cinematography at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and the Best Documentary from the International Press Association. It has won over 30 awards at festivals worldwide.
