When a half-Chechen, half-Russian, brutally tortured immigrant turns up in Hamburg's Islamic community, laying claim to his father's ill gotten fortune, both German and US security agencies take a close interest: as the clock ticks down and the stakes rise, the race is on to establish this most wanted man's true identity - oppressed victim or destruction-bent extremist? Based on John le Carré's novel, A MOST WANTED MAN is a contemporary, cerebral tale of intrigue, love, rivalry, and politics that prickles with tension right through to its last heart-stopping scene.

Yaron's wife is expecting their first child, and the failing health of a team member weighs on his soul, and the price that must be paid as a result of this. As the story shifts, the antagonists are introduced: a small group of politically extreme individuals with their own vision of how Israeli society should be. They use terrorism to make their misguided vision a reality. Yaron faces the prospect of the very evil he works to eliminate taking on the form of his beloved Israeli countrymen.

In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change. But that first trip north opened his eyes to the biggest story in human history and sparked a challenge within him that would put his career and his very well-being at risk.  Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet.

Chasing Ice has won numerous awards at film festivals around the world.  The film's protagonist and recipient of the Dickinson College 2014 Sam Rose and Julie Walters Prize for Global Environmental Activism, James Balog, will be on the Dickinson campus for a residency on September 23-24, and will give a public lecture on Tuesday, September 23.  Details are available on the Dickinson College website.  Please note that the Saturday, September 20 showing of Chasing Ice is free to the entire Carlisle community, and will be followed by a discussion at the Theatre.  All other showings are sponsored by Dickinson College; ticket price for students with ID is $3.00.
