The Quiet Zone + Ice Flow

Monday, February 5, 2018 at 12:00pm
Yukon Arts Centre

A community of electrically sensitive people is fleeing to a remote mountainous region of West Virginia called the National Radio Quiet Zone. In the shadow of one of the world’s largest and most sensitive radio telescopes, The Quiet Zone follows four characters as they adapt to life in this unique environment. The film draws a subtle parallel between the telescope and the electro-sensitive community, reflecting growing concerns and ambivalence about the relentless permeation of communications technology.
