The Documentary Blood in the Mobile (2010) shows the connection between our phones and the civil war in the Congo. Director Frank Poulsen travels to DR Congo to see the illegal mine industry with his own eyes. He gets access to Congo’s largest tin-mine, which is being controlled by different armed groups, and where children work for days in narrow mine tunnels to dig out the minerals that end up in our phones.
This film festival is sponsored by the Weissberg Program in Human Rights with a grant from the U.S. Institute of Peace Public Education for Peacebuilding Support Initiative.
This event is free and open to the campus and community.
