Every year millions of tons of discarded electronic waste – computers, television sets, mobile phones, household appliances – are shipped illegally to India, China or Africa. This film spans the world to reveal how greed and corruption are ruining the globe’s legal recycling systems, damaging the environment, creating security risks and endangering human health. Can the toxic tide be stemmed, or are too many people willingly turning a blind eye?

Directed by Cosima Dannoritzer. Produced by Fabrice Estéve and Joan Úbeda.
