ASBESTOS, DEADLY SILENCE

How did things get so far out of control? To find an answer to this vital question, director Daniel Cattelain returned to his native Condé-sur-Noireau, a sizeable town in the Calvados region, which worked with asbestos for over a century. He went to ask the key players of the time: workers, managers, doctors and patients. From their memories and recollections, it became obvious that the truth had been known for some time. But which truth? And for how long ? What did those who knew do about it ? Why wait so long before asbestos was banned ? In a sense, this is a documentary about « deadly inertia ».
