Flew into Salt Lake City last night for a weeklong stint reporting on the Sundance Film Festival and doing some other field work for future stories. I'll be filing "Sundance Diary" posts for On Earth's website this week, seeking early info on some of 2012's most compelling documentaries. I've covered Mark Kitchell's "A Fierce Green Fire" extensively, but it's not the only interesting movie screening around town. Just filed a piece on "Chasing Ice," about an amazing five-year quest by National Geographic photographer James Balog to document climate change with time-lapse cameras stationed on some of the world's most remote glaciers. Also hoping to get a few items in about the strange rituals of Sundance. Which this year include an army of volunteers wearing bright orange Kenneth Cole down jackets. Gotta get one of those for my daughter. Tuesday morning update: Caught three films yesterday. Will post on two of them soon, but I had to get an immediate piece up on "The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom," which was nominated for an Oscar this morning. More soon.
