Rachel Carson is widely regarded as one of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century. Her talent as a writer, combined with her deep knowledge of the natural world, made her a potent advocate for the use of precaution when working with biological systems. In 1962, her best-selling book, Silent Spring, awoke the environmental consciousness of America with poignant words of caution in the face of rapidly advancing scientific progress. This documentary film pulls insights from a variety of speakers at a 50 year anniversary celebration of Silent Spring.
