Natural History on the Big Screen: Frozen ObsessionWebcasts & Online
Thursday, March 4, 2021, 5 – 6pm EST
Join the National Museum of Natural History and the Northwest Passage Project for a screening and discussion of Frozen Obsession - all on your very own screen!
For centuries sailors were obsessed with finding a path across the mostly frozen arctic. Now, scientists are racing to understand a warming Arctic, and how these environmental changes will affect all of Earth’s inhabitants. Frozen Obsession follows the 18-day, 2000-mile Northwest Passage Project, a groundbreaking journey by scientists and students through the stunningly beautiful and extreme Canadian Arctic. After watching the film, join a virtual discussion on March 4th, with the filmmaker and co-principal investigator David Clark, two oceanographers from the expedition Brice Loose and Donglai Gong, and one of the undergraduate students aboard the vessel, Korenna Estes. In a conversation moderated by NMNH ocean educator Meaghan Cuddy, they’ll offer insight into the expedition’s research, the impacts of a warming Arctic, and the next generation of climate scientists.
