Produced and narrated by Oscar-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio, Ice on Fire is an eye-opening documentary that focuses on many never-before-seen solutions designed to slow down our escalating environmental crisis.

Ice on Fire focuses on the cutting-edge research behind today’s climate science – and the innovations aimed at reducing carbon in the atmosphere, which could pave the way for a reduction in the global temperature rise and a benefit to the planet’s life systems.

With sweeping cinematography of a world worth saving, Ice on Fire was filmed across the globe, from Norway to Alaska, Iceland to Colorado, Switzerland to Costa Rica to Connecticut. The film highlights first-hand accounts of people at the forefront of the climate crisis, with insights from scientists, farmers, innovators and others.

Ice on Fire emphasizes the importance of an immediate, two-pronged approach to reversing the crisis: reducing carbon emissions through traditional renewable energy sources and new ones, and implementing “drawdown” measures, focusing on methods for drawing down and sequestering carbon.

The film visits places such as: the Usal Redwood Forest Foundation in northern California, highlighting a carbon-storage project that focuses on reforestation; Climeworks’ direct air capture machine in Zurich; and Thimble Island Ocean Farm off the coast of Connecticut, where shellfish and seaweed are grown to soak up more carbon than land-based plants and can be used for food, animal feed and fertilizer.
