The wages of consumer techology

DEATH BY DESIGN is a critical look at our age's addiction to consumer technology and the dire consequences of this globalized obsession. From the secretive electronics factories of China to the high-tech innovation labs of Silicon Valley, director Sue Williams tells a story of environmental degradation, personal health tragedies and the fast-approaching tipping point between consumerism and sustainability. After seeing this movie, you will never look at your smart phone the same way again.
