Black snow is about life around a large steel factory in IJmuiden, The Netherlands.
A place along the coast where some people depend on the livelihood the factory provides and others worry on the many problems it gives.
Tata Steel factory is under scrutiny at the moment, due to protests and scandals.
Pollution is a large problem and many are worried. In early february 2021 snow wasn’t white but black in some places.
This is because of the occasional graphite rains. A unfortunate byproduct caused while making steel.
