Death by Design
Sue Williams / USA / 2016 / 73 min. / in English with Czech subtitles
The manufacture of laptops, mobiles and electronics overall is toxic. Aggressive chemicals lead to death from new types of cancer and birth defects in children. Manufacturers know this.
They’ve been thwarting court trials and covering up information for 30 years. This documentary systematically uncovers a problem of global proportions. It shows how things are
exacerbated by inhumane conditions in Chinese factories, the methods used for “liquidating” old devices, and practices that force customers to buy new models. However, there are
those who seek safe ways of dealing with electronics so they do not lead to fatal results.
