Have you ever wondered what happens to your electronics at the end of their life?
Almost 50 million tonnes of e-waste (electronic waste) are generated worldwide every year. A large volume of second-hand and condemned electronic goods arrive in developing countries from the "developed" world, with a significant quantity arriving as e-waste, exported illegally as "second hand goods".
Without dialogue or narration, this film presents a visual portrait of unregulated e-waste recycling in Ghana, West Africa, where electronics are not seen for what they once were, but rather for what they have become.
