Invisible

English (subtitled), 63 min, 2006, UK

'Invisible' tells the story of how man-made chemicals build up in our bodies and pass silently from mother to child. It is thought that these hormone-disrupting substances are affecting the reproductive systems and neurological health of animals and humans across the planet. This film leads us on a hypnotic journey to the high Arctic. Using medieval texts and maps to question hierarchies of knowledge, the film shows contemporary Inuit life, explores their traditional connection to the earth and stages dramatic tableaux vivants in landscapes of frozen sea. 'Invisible' resists the conventions of science documentaries and questions how we live in the world today.
