San Francisco Green Film Festival proudly presents the SF Premiere of Death By Design at the Bay Area Science Festival. After the screening, join an expert discussion on the environmental impacts of our digital addiction.

We all love – and live on – our smartphones, tablets and laptops. A cascade of new devices pours endlessly into the market, promising ever better communication, non-stop entertainment and instant information. The numbers are staggering. By 2020, four billion people will have a personal computer. Five billion will own a mobile phone.


But this revolution has a dark side. In an investigation spanning the globe, filmmaker Sue Williams investigates the underbelly of the electronics industry. From leading environmental activist Ma Jun and the young laborers in Chinese factories, to activists in 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.

Followed by panel discussion.
