Part environmental expose and part art film, this powerful crossover piece flies in the face of conventional documentary making methods. In her visually stunning picture, artist and filmmaker Mortimer leads us on a hypnotic journey to the high arctic. Against this wintry backdrop she follows research into the far-reaching effects of chemicals on the environment, and considers the extent of their consequences.

Featuring testimonies from leading environmental scientists and women from the Inuit community, Invisible tells the story of how man-made chemicals are building up in our bodies and being passed from mother to child. Mortimer uses dramatic imagery to create a fascinating portrait of contemporary Inuit life. The result is a thought-provoking documentary that questions how we live in the world today.

Roz Mortimer is an artist and filmmaker who lives and works in London.   She has a particular interest in experimental forms of documentary. Her award winning films have been screened widely around the world and have been supported by Arts Council England, British Council, Wellcome Trust, and The Rockefeller Foundation.
