Silent Snow: The Invisible Poisoning of the World
Jan van den Berg , Pipaluk Knudsen-Ostermann, 2011
Netherlands | 71 minutes

Travelling on ocean currents and carried in snowfall, chemical residue accumulates in the once-pristine Arctic. These pesticides are poisoning both the Inuit people and the animals, causing illness and even threatening the unborn. Pipaluk Knudsen-Ostermann travels from her home in Greenland to communities in Uganda, India and Costa Rica to find local causes of the contamination that makes its way to the Arctic. The result is a film both highly personal and universal.
