Conversation: The Lake at the Bottom of the World

  • October 16, 2021 at 5:00 PM EDT

The cast and crew of The Lake at the Bottom of the World share with us insights on the making of this research film.

Director Kathy Kasic’s artistic vision and craving for adventure have brought her to film off the bow of a ship, underwater in wild mountain rivers, and to the depths of an unexplored subglacial lake 3600 feet beneath the ice in Antarctica. For six weeks, assistant film professor Kathy Kasic slept in a tent on top of an ice sheet in Antarctica, dealing with frosty temperatures and bitter wind as she filmed.

Moderated by Katayoun Chamany, Mohn Family Professor of Biology at the Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts at The New School
