The Hartford Courant:

'SILENT SNOW' REVEALS ENVIRONMENTAL DEVASTATION \ FILM

Friday, September 6, 2013
Author: SUSAN DUNNE

Pipaluk Knudsen-Ostermann was born and raised in Greenland, a country, she said, where the people "don't worry too much." Then one Christmas came along and there was no snow. No snow by New Year's either, just rain that later froze. In Greenland, that's not right. So she started to worry. 

"Sure I did notice," Knudsen-Ostermann said. "You start wondering, don't you?" 

She suspected pollution was changing the climate and environment but did not know where it would have come from. "Greenland doesn't have industry as you know it in other parts of the world. So then I realized somebody else is causing the pollution," she said. "Don't understand me wrong, we also drive cars, etc., in Greenland, so we also cause pollution but not in this scale for sure." 

In Amsterdam, where she had moved with her husband, she met Jan van den Berg, who made a short documentary about persistent organic pollutants in the Arctic. Together, they decided to turn the short into a feature, "Silent Snow: The Invisible Poisoning of the World." 

"Silent Snow" will be shown Sunday, Sept. 8, at Ridgefield Playhouse. Knudsen-Ostermann and van den Berg will do a Q&A via Skype after the show. 

The movie discusses how industrial chemicals such as DDT, used in other countries, get into wind streams and the bodies of aquatic animals that migrate worldwide. In the film, Knudsen-Ostermann travels to Uganda, Costa Rica and India to talk to people whose lives are being affected by toxins. 

Van den Berg said he is shocked that Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring," a 1962 expose about environmental pollutants, had so little effect. 

"The so-called dirty dozen, in the meantime they're taking about the dirty 19, still are made and used all over the world, threatening the Inuit, but also the whole world," he said. "They are just the canaries in the mine, as one of them said to me." 

Ugandan villagers talk about how they are forced to use DDT to fight malaria, even though DDT is more harmful. In Costa Rica, small farmers explain organic mosquito-fighting methods, even as large plantations use pesticides. In India, Knudsen-Ostermann meets a crusader against factory dumping. 

The visual elements in van den Berg's film show the distinctive features of these countries. He lets the commentators talk about the invisible ugliness. "We like to show the beauty of what's at stake," he said. 

Van den Berg is making a sequel to "Silent Snow" called "Silent Land," which focuses on over-farming and oppression of small farmers. 

"Sometimes people say after the screening of 'Silent Snow' that we need these poisons to feed the world. That's why we are working on 'Silent Land,' " he said. "Farmers play an essential role in fighting hunger in the local communities of many poor countries. But multinational companies buy their land and these farmers are being chased to the cities, where food is more expensive. 

"In Costa Rica, after 10 years of intensive pineapple production, nothing will grow anymore on that land. It becomes dead, silent land," he said. 

He hopes his two movies will persuade people to discuss the issue. "Of course you can't change the world with a film, but we did at least something." 

"SILENT SNOW: THE INVISIBLE POISONING OF THE WORLD" will be shown at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 8, at Ridgefield Playhouse, 80 East Ridge in Ridgefield. After the screening, a Skype talk will be held with director Jan van den Berg and subject Pipaluk Knudsen-Ostermann. Admission is $10, $7.50 seniors, $5 students. Details: www.ridgefieldplay

Hello, everybody. After being in relationship with my husband for years, he broke up with me. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before three days. He cast the spell and surprisingly on the second day, my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.
