After Ice is a short film that explores how the glacial landscapes of the Hornafjörður region of Southeast Iceland are being affected by climate change. By comparing modern-day drone footage with 3D models created from aerial photography collected by the National Land Survey of Iceland throughout the Twentieth Century, we can gain a glimpse of not only the physical changes but also the aesthetics of a disappearing frozen world.
