Antarctica: Ice and Sky (2016/Music Box Films DVD)

Picture: B- Sound: B- Extras: B Film: B

From Luc Jacquet - the man who brought you March of the Penguins, comes another chilly nature documentary, Antarctica: Ice and Sky (2016). This time, the focus is on Antarctica and the telling of Claude Louris, who was the first scientist to discover man made climate change! Beautifully shot and edited, the documentary poses some interesting thoughts on the subject, while giving viewers a look back at unique archival footage that is documentary filmmaking at some of its finest.

Some of the shots and directing in this are pretty remarkable as is Louris' story. The most interesting aspect to me are all of the people that at first didn't believe that climate change is actually a posing threat to humanity. After watching this film, I'm sure those naysayers are going to be biting their tongues, denial continuing or not.

Presented in standard definition with an anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and a lossy English (and French) lossy 5.1 Dolby Digital Track, the film looks and sounds fine for the DVD format, but could benefit greatly in high definition on Blu-ray disc with all of this great cinematography.
