The Arctic plains are an eminent example of nature’s untouched beauty: an endless nothing in which only few know how to survive. But a silent assassin is destroying the Inuit community. By ocean currents and attached to snow, pesticides like DDT are carried northbound into Inuit land, causing illness and premature death of humans and animals. Silent Snow is both a documentary and an investigation project, portraying the people that are affected most, by what turns out to be a structural pollution of the entire global environmental system.
