Abstract Technology has truly revolutionized the ways in which we interact with the world, but what happened to your old phone when you upgraded? Where did your broken computer or television end up? Electronic waste is one of the fastest growing environmental threats of the 21st century. This documentary follows the path of discarded electronics. It reveals the illegal trade in discarded technology, tracking it to toxic scrapyards around the world, and exposing the detrimental effects it has on the environment and the people who dismantle our waste in unsafe conditions. Through interviews with those on the frontlines, the film also discovers some remarkable people and companies trying to change the way we think about electronics, and how we consume technology.
