Welcome to Sodom
Your Smartphone is already here.
The film "Welcome to Sodom" does not focus on the mechanisms of the illegal e-waste trade, but on the living conditions and fates of people at the lowest end of the global value chain. The Agbogbloshie dump will most likely be the last destination for the tablets, smartphones and computers we will buy tomorrow.
The film shows - using the example of a landfill for electronic waste in Ghana - in an impressive way the influences of humans on their environment and is highly relevant against the background of our daily dealings with electronic devices.
"Welcome to Sodom" is a sensually, emotionally and intellectually stimulating film documentary, which also impresses with its journalistic ethos and impressive powers of observation.
Emotionally moving, the film appeals to the viewer's personal responsibility.
The film jury also liked the technical aspects such as editing, camera work and especially the aesthetics and uniqueness of the images shown.
