“… the most scientifically informative documentary ever made about climate change.” – Producer David Sington

Award-winning New Zealand climate change documentary Thin Ice: The Inside Story of Climate Science has its New Zealand premiere screening of the director’s broadcast cut in Auckland in September.

The film, made by Victoria University of Wellington and Oxford University, has been screened internationally and is a finalist at the prestigious Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival 2015.

The New Zealand premiere of Thin Ice takes place at The Academy Cinema in Auckland on Sunday 6 September at 6pm. It will be followed by a panel discussion chaired by Radio New Zealand science reporter Veronika Meduna and featuring the film’s co-director Simon Lamb, well-known actress and activist Lucy Lawless, Ecostore founder Malcolm Rands, Sustainable Coastlines chief executive Sam Judd and Generation Zero’s Nico Elsen.

Actress and activist Lucy Lawless said she is lending her support to the project because “for too long climate science has been treated with contempt when in fact it is the greatest hope for our future. Everyone should see this film to understand how climate science offers our grandchildren a brighter future".

Produced and directed by leading documentary maker David Sington and Victoria University’s School of Geography, Environment and Earth Sciences associate professor Dr Simon Lamb, the Thin Ice project began in 2006 in response to climate sceptics. It follows a personal journey of discovery by Dr Lamb for more than three years as he meets and interviews 40 scientists working at the front line of climate change research in the Arctic, Antarctic, Southern Ocean, New Zealand, Europe and the United States.

The scientists talk about their work, their hopes and fears with a rare candour and directness and the result is an intimate portrait of the global community of researchers racing to understand our planet's changing climate.

The global launch of Thin Ice took place on Earth Day (April 22) 2012 with screenings in more than 200 locations on all seven continents of the world. Since then a DVD with subtitles in six languages, representing half of the world’s population, has been released. Since July this year, a shorter version for American public television has already been broadcast to more than 150 stations in the United States. The film has also screened at a number of highly regarded film festivals, picking up numerous awards.
