BLOOD IN THE MOBILE + Director Q&A

Dir: Frank Piasecki Poulsen
Denmark / 2010 / 85mins

We can't live without our mobile phones, but their production has a dark and bloody side. Minerals used to make our mobiles come from mines in the Eastern DR Congo, funding a brutal civil war responsible for around 5 million deaths, atrocious child labour and some 300,000 rapes in the last 15 years. It's a war that will continue as long as armed groups can trade the minerals. Director Frank Poulsen travels to Congo and gets access to its largest illegal tin-mine, where enslaved children dig for days in narrow tunnels. He then tries to confront Nokia, the world's largest phone company. Are they implicated in trading 'conflict minerals'?

Followed by a Q&A with director Frank Piasecki Poulsen and Annie Dunnebacke senior campaigns advisor at Global Witness.
