Film Description: Consumers love – and live on – their smartphones, tablets and laptops. New devices pour endlessly into the market, promising even better communication, non-stop entertainment and instant information. But this revolution has a dark side, hidden from most consumers. In a global investigation, the film looks at the underbelly of the electronics industry and reveals its deadly environmental and health costs. From the intensely secretive factories in China, to the high tech corridors of Silicon Valley, the film tells a story of environmental degradation, health tragedies, and the tipping point between consumerism and sustainability. Directed by Sue Williams.
