DISCOVERING LINDANE – The legacy of HCH production

Between 1974 and 1992 Inquinosa produced 140,000 tons of toxic HCH waste that were buried in several uncontrolled dumps in Sabiñánigo. Inquinosa produced LINDANE, a pesticide banned in the EU since 2000 and worldwide by the Conference of the Parties of the Stockholm Convention in 2009.

Silent Snow with Russian subtitles

The movie Silent Snow is now available with Russian subtitles!

https://vimeo.com/122953087. Анонс русскоязычной версии документального фильма <Безмолвный снег> К <Неделе мероприятий по пестицидам> (20-30 марта 2015 г.) ОБСЕ подготовило русскоязычную версию документального фильма <Безмолвный снег> голландского режиссера Яна ван ден Берга. Фильм красноречиво показывает негативное воздействие пестицидов на жизнь как тех, кто ими непосредственно пользуются, так и тех, кто никогда не имел о них представления.
Для русскоязычной аудитории фильм доступен бесплатно, однако, при желании, можно сделать благотворительный вклад для развития других фильмов серии <Безмолвная земля> Яна ван дер Берга на http://silentland.org/en/take-action/donate/.
Фильм находится на https://vimeo.com/122953087 и https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iAcxdjq6rnE&feature=youtu.be.
Благодарим переводчика фильма, Катерину Роговскую ( Katya Rogovska ), за безвозмездный вклад в подготовке этой языковой версии.
С вопросами обращайтесь, пожалуйста, к режиссеру фильма Яну ван ден Бергу info@drsfilm.tv либо Тамаре Кутоновой (ОБСЕ) tamara.kutonova@osce.org.
