Green Film Fest presents Death By Design
Inside Chinese factories
Sep 26, 2016

San Francisco Green Film Festival proudly presents the SF Premiere of 'Death By Design' at the Bay Area Science Festival.

We all love – and live on – our smartphones, tablets and laptops. By 2020, four billion people will have a personal computer. Five billion will own a mobile phone. But this revolution has a dark side.

From leading environmental activist Ma Jun and the factories in China, to our own high tech corridors of Silicon Valley, 'Death By Design' (dir. Sue Williams, USA, 73mins) reveals the environmental and human impact of the consumer race for the latest devices. The dirty secrets of our digital addiction.

Film followed by panel discussion.
