ABOUT "DEATH BY DESIGN"?
Consumers love – and live on – their smartphones, tablets and laptops. A cascade of new devices pours endlessly into the market, promising even better communication, non-stop entertainment, and instant information. The numbers are staggering. In 2021, 5.3 billion people — 66.5 percent of the GLOBAL population — had a mobile phone. In 2019, almost half of private households worldwide — 47 percent — were estimated to have a computer at home.
But this revolution has a dark side that the electronics industry doesn’t want you to see.
In an investigation that spans the globe, award-winning filmmaker Sue Williams investigates the underbelly of the international electronics industry and reveals how even the tiniest devices have deadly environmental and health costs.
As always, we recommend that you watch the film on a wired device!
