Point of No Return (2016)

Under a microscope tiny shards of ice loom large as glaciers. Using microscopic videography and polarizing lenses, Point of No Return is a visually stunning study of melting ice in real time. The film provides a micro perspective on climate change, a massive but incremental global event that is usually imperceptible in our day to day lives.

With narration in eleven of the most widely-spoken languages in the world, Point of No Return presents a dialogue in abstraction between emotional understanding and scientific fact in the face of rising global temperatures.
