World’s largest glacier calving captured on video


In this scene from the documentary ‘Chasing Ice’ Adam LeWinter and Director Jeff Orlowski film a historic breakup at the Ilulissat Glacier in Western Greenland in 2008.

The calving event lasted for 75 minutes and the glacier retreated a full mile across a calving 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 has won 24 awards so far this year.
