Details

Accra is the largest electronic waste dump in the world. About 6000 women, men and children live and work there; they call it Sodom. Every year about 250,000 tons of sorted out computers, smartphones, air conditioner tanks and other devices from a faraway electrified and digitalized world end up there, shipped to Ghana illegally. Everybody in Sodom is in some way or another living off the blessings of the computer age, many die of them. 

This film portrays people whose existence and everyday life is not only formed by modern technology but threatened by it too. This is the place where the curse of digital consumer madness becomes manifest. Sodom is the true end of our modern digitalized world. And it will most probably be the final destination of the tablet, smart phone or computer you buy tomorrow.
