Description
dir. Sue Williams
Death by Design investigates the underbelly of the electronics industry, revealing how even the smallest devices have deadly environmental and health costs.

From intensely secretive factories in China to a ravaged New York community and the high-tech corridors of Silicon Valley, the film tells a story of environmental degradation, health tragedies, and the fast-approaching tipping point between consumerism and sustainability. (2016, 73 min, digital)
