Here's a pic of our group for those who might have missed our first meet up on Saturday. We will be sitting at a table near the Salt Lake Roasting Company Cafe on the east end of the Urban Room (entrance) of the Salt Lake City Library.
Beneath the orange croissant is a copy of the original event posting. Please let us know if you plan to attend so we will look for you. I'll try the orange balloons again so you can find us although I miserably failed the last time. And I might have a new orange scarf to wear..well coral colored on the orange side.
I think we will plan to gather at the movie entrance at 6:45 PM to try to get seats together.
HERE'S THE PLAN. We will meet at 6:00 PM at the SALT LAKE ROASTING COMPANY CAFE IN the Library's Urban Room (the atrium entrance) before the Movie, which begins at 7:00 PM. There is parking beneath the library and TRAX has a drop off at the library.
The SLRCompany cafe is located on the east end of the Urban Room. Here's a picture
I couldn't wait, so I previewed the movie last Friday at the District Megaplex. It's an amazing compilation of years of work with breathtaking photography.
The Screening will be followed by a Q+A with director Jeff Orlowski, moderated by Doug Fabrizio, host of KUER’s RadioWest.*
Here's a trailer for this Sundance Film Festival, 2011 award winning show:
AMAZING TESTIMONY FROM AN O'REILLY DEVOTEE. This is a great article about Chasing Ice
Listen to this Bill O'Reilly devotee's reaction after seeing the movie. She is literally heart broken to learn of earth's dire circumstances. Psst Bill, you just lost a viewer/climate change denier:

When National Geographic photographer James Balog asked, “How can one take a picture of climate change?” his attention was immediately drawn to ice. Soon he was asked to do a cover story on glaciers that became the most popular and well-read piece in the magazine during the last five years. But for Balog, that story marked the beginning of a much larger and longer-term project that would reach epic proportions.
In this breathtakingly beautiful documentary, filmmaker Jeff Orlowski follows the indomitable photographer as he brings to life the Extreme Ice Survey (EIS)—a massive photography project that placed 30 cameras across three continents to gather visual evidence of the Earth’s melting ice. Chasing Ice tells the story of a visionary artist who, in facing his own mortality, bequeaths the magic of photography and the adventure of the expedition to a new generation and captures the most visible sign of climate change on the planet today.

Phone: (801) 524-8200So I wonder if the Q+A session will run later?
I called and was assured that we will be able to exit the Library parking lot after 9:00 PM. The gate is automated. If for some reason the gate gets stuck (unlikely) the phone number for the privatized garage operator is 801 355-6699 (Diamond Parking).
