An American scientist invents a new weapon of mass destruction - silver dust. Corporate war breaks out between two military industry giants to own the weapon. The scientist dies and his son makes the discovery public with more consequences. Written by
Must see for anyone looking into how American political system works.
"Serebristaya pyl" (Silver powder) is a brilliant Soviet rendition of a novel "Jackalls" written by the Estonian writer. The search for "wunderwaffe" never stopped since the guns of the WWII ceased to fire, and continued in the labs of the mighty American military industrial complex, not without help of nazi scientists who preferred rather to work for yankees than be hanged in Nurnberg. The movie shows the fantastic abilities of the military science, the messianic ambitions of the American elites, the greed and corruption of the top ranks, the certain strings which help the elites to cement and rule the American society, the strange twists of the popular mind, disregard of ethics when ethics become an obstacle in the way to the coveted goal, all packed into a thrilling edge-of-the-seat political sci-fi detective. A brilliant invention by the American scientist of a highly effective radioactive poison which self-decomposes and becomes harmless in just several days after military deployment in the enemy's territory gives a start to a cut-throat competition between two large Wall-Street corporations or trusts wishing to appear as the invention owners. All means go and no ethics are observed.
