Complicit shines a light on the dark side of the global electronic manufacturing industry following factory migrant worker-turned-activist Yi Yeting as he works to defend millions of Chinese workers from becoming terminally ill due to working conditions.
Travelling from factory floors to hospital beds, this searing expose uncovers the human cost of the ruthless production line responsible for 90% of the world’s consumer electronics. Filmmakers Heather White and Lynn Zhang take us to the frontline of China’s labour movement as workers fights again poor wages and abysmal working conditions while facing the corruption of corporations who refuse to take any responsibilities for the effects of the poisonous chemicals used in production. A vital and urgent reminder of the human cost of modern technology.
We're delighted to announce that co-director Heather White will join us for a Q&A following the screening.
