The Havre de Grace Maritime Museum presents Death by Design

Wednesday, January 10, 7pm
Havre de Grace Maritime Museum, Havre de Grace, Maryland
FREE and open to the public
Post-screening discussion

As part of the Environmental Film Series, the Havre de Grace Maritime Museum will show Death by Design, in collaboration with the Havre de Grace Green Team. In the film, filmmaker Sue Williams explores the cost of digital dependency on lives and the environment.

Consumers love – and live on – their smartphones, tablets and laptops. A cascade of new devices pours endlessly into the market, promising even better communication, non-stop entertainment and instant information. The numbers are staggering. By 2020, four billion people will have a personal computer. Five billion will own a mobile phone.

But this revolution has a dark side, hidden from most consumers. In an investigation that spans the globe, filmmaker Sue Williams investigates the underbelly of the electronics industry and reveals how even the smallest devices have deadly environmental and health costs. From the intensely secretive factories in China, to a ravaged New York community and the high tech corridors of Silicon Valley, the film tells a story of environmental degradation, of health tragedies, and the fast approaching tipping point between consumerism and sustainability.

Movie screenings begin promptly at 7pm, and doors will close shortly thereafter to protect the integrity of the Museum space. This is a free event and discussion afterwards is greatly encouraged.
