The Human Element - directed by Matthew Testa
Renowned environmental photographer James Balog (Chasing Ice) uses his camera to reveal how environmental change is affecting the lives of everyday Americans. Following the four classical elements--air, earth, fire and water--to frame his journey, Balog explores wildfires, hurricanes, sea level rise, coal miners, and the changes in the air we breathe. With compassion and heart, The Human Element tells an urgent story while giving inspiration for a more balanced relationship between humanity and nature.
