About the Film
Formed by ice, filled by ice, often covered by ice, the Great Lakes encapsulate human exploration, migration, development and where we're headed. PROJECT: ICE views North America's fresh water inland ocean through the prism of ice, from the crossroads of history, science and climate change.
