"Even if I die in army, I will be a hero," - British filmmakers show documentary on environmentally unfriendly Russian city of Norilsk. VIDEO

British filmmakers James Newton and Edward Edwards made a short documentary about people living in the environmentally unfriendly Russian city of Norilsk the day before the polar night has fallen over it.

As reported by Censor.NET, the filmmakers visited Norilsk, the remote Russian city closed to the outsiders, to capture on camera the lives of residents of the country's coldest city.

"In winter, the temperature can drop to -55 degrees centigrade and the sun does not show up for 40 days," the documentary producers said.

"Besides, many of the 160,000 Norilsk residents work at the plants producing platinum, nickel, and cobalt – the enterprises responsible for 2 percent of global carbon dioxide emissions," they said.

High mortality rate in the city is caused by industrial pollution while the average life expectancy here is ten years lower than the national average.
