Blood in the Mobile
Time Out says
Director Frank Piasecki Poulsen puts himself in front of the camera (a little too insistently at times) paying a visit to the HQ of his phone supplier Nokia. Asked about the supply chain of the minerals cassiterite and coltan, the execs just deliver marketing-speak. With suicidal levels of reckless courage, Poulsen flies to the DRC and a cassiterite mine – not long after a massacre. Descending into the mine with a child worker, it’s like he’s plunging into hell; the footage is extraordinary. It’s enough to make you reconsider that new smartphone.
