Silent Snow

Description: The Arctic plains are an eminent example of nature’s untouched beauty: an endless nothing in which only few know how to survive. But dangerous pesticides are silently accumulating here, poisoning its inhabitants. A young Inuit woman investigates the sources of this pollution. Her journey takes her to three different continents, where she is confronted with conflicting interests when it comes to short-term gains and healthy solutions for agriculture, industries and health care. The recent developments in the Arctic are a disturbing preview of the consequences of structural pollution of the environmental system worldwide. The film engages hydro and natural gas energy executives, oil company representatives, nuclear spokesmen, scientists, academics and activists in an intelligent debate.
