The Arctic plains are an eminent example of nature’s untouched beauty: an endless nothing in which only a few know how to survive. But a silent assassin is destroying the Inuit community in Greenland. Chemical residues from all over the world accumulate here invisibly, poisoning both humans and animals. By ocean currents and attached to snow, pesticides are carried northbound into Inuit land, causing illness and premature death. Silent Snow follows a young Greenlandic woman on her journey all around the world to find the causes of the contamination that is quietly poisoning her people.

Directed by Jan van den Berg and Pipaluk Knudsen-Ostermann.
