Agbogbloshie in Accra is proven to be one of the most poisonous places. it is the largest electronic waste dump in the world. About 6,000 women, men and children live and work here. They call it Sodom.
Every year approximately 250,000 tons of sorted computers, smartphones, air conditioner tanks and other devices from a far away electrified and digitalised world end up here, shipped to Ghana illegally.
This powerful documentary portrays people whose existence and everyday life is not only formed by modern technology but threatened by it too. This is the place where the curse of digital consumer madness becomes manifest. Sodom is the true end of our modern digitalised world. And it will most probably be the final destination of the tablet, the smart phone, the computer you buy tomorrow.
Screened as part of the UK Green Film Festival.
