Spring 2024

This print issue of Documentary comes right before IDA’s biennial industry conference, Getting Real. In the tradition of past magazine issues that immediately precede the conference, this issue previews the conference’s themes of “Strategy, Networks, Access” through interviews with speakers whose work will be featured at the conference. At this point, however, I should show my hand. I’m not only the editor of this publication but also the conference director of Getting Real. These pieces illustrate the heterogeneous and earnest quality of the dialogue we hope to model at the conference—and model the actions we hope these conversations will inspire toward a more just and distributed documentary ecosystem.Articles featured in the print version will be published online throughout April-June, 2024.

The Living Ice of Greenland

A dark microbial forest is melting the Greenland Ice Sheet far faster than any models have predicted. THE LIVING ICE OF GREENLAND follows a group of Arctic scientists as they traverse Greenland and conduct microbial ecological research in deep field camps on the Ice Sheet, via boat travel to melting glaciers, and by steep ascents on foot to remote polar glaciers.
