Blood in the Mobile

We love our gadgets, but there is often a hidden and deadly cost. Blood in the Mobile examines the direct link between our cell phones and the civil war in the Congo. Mining of conflict minerals used in cell phones funds the ongoing wars that are responsible for millions of deaths, hundreds of thousands of rapes and the cruel mistreatment of child labourors. Director Frank Poulsen takes us into mines being controlled by armed groups. He then takes what he has found to the Nokia corporate headquarters only to be given the runaround by the self-acclaimed "socially responsible" corporation.
