10% of the earth’s surface is covered by glacial ice, over a third of which could disappear by the end of this century due to global warming.

Our glaciers have rested over thousands of years in profound silence and their continuous recession today reminds us of the  deeply disturbing probability of their disappearance.

Melting Landscapes -Glaciers- was made over a 4-year period on various glaciers around the world. 

In 2017 I was very fortunate to be able to accompany and work with the photographer Fernando Moleres in Greenland, he had been developing the photographic work of Melting Landscapes in the Arctic for some time. I was able to continue accompanying him in the following chapters of the project to work on the video part.

After directly witnessing Greenland’s melting and receding glaciers due to global warming, I felt a personal need to commit to the environment and carry out an exhaustive study of how human-provoked climate change is causing this. The first report I worked on in a Greenland ice field was followed by others in ice fields in Iceland and southern Chile and glaciers in Argentina and Antarctica.

The importance of glaciers resides in their capacity to store our planet’s fresh water, reflect the sun’s heat and regulate global temperatures. They are very sensitive to changes in temperature and their exponential melting alerts us to this undeniable problem, directly showing us the unpredictable effects of climate change on our planet.

 

As the main characters of this documentary, the textures and sounds of these frozen landscapes tell their own story of transformation.
