Dir. Sue Williams l Documentary | U.S.A. | 2016 | 73 min.
Consumers love—and live on—their smartphones, tablets, and laptops. A cascade of new devices pours endlessly into the market, promising to be smaller, faster, and more powerful than ever before. But this global revolution presents a fast-approaching tipping point between consumerism and sustainability. This investigative documentary exposes the under-reported environmental degradation and illnesses linked to an industry that relies on planned obsolescence. What emerges is an in-depth look at the lack of accountability prevalent in the technology industry today, and the need for drastic change in manufacturing practices.
Cinema Circus starts at 5:30 PM
