Film looks at chemical pollution
Movies That Matter Beacon will screen the 2011 documentary, Silent Snow, at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 27, at the First Presbyterian Church. Moki Kokoris, an environmental educator and founder of 90-North, which focuses on issues in the Arctic and sub-Arctic, will be the guest speaker.
The documentary follows an Inuit woman from Greenland whose community is being poisoned by chemical residue, such as the pesticide DDT, attached to snow and carried by currents. See moviesthatmatterbeacon.org.
