What is the cost of our digital dependency?
"Death by Design", a feature length documentary,
explores this ques!on and uncovers a global story
of damaged lives, environmental destruc!on and
devices that are designed to die. Consumers love —
and live on — their smartphones, tablets and lap‐
tops. A cascade of new devices pours endlessly into
the market, promising even be#er communica!on,
non‐stop entertainment and instant informa!on.
The numbers are staggering. By 2020, four billion
people will have a personal computer. Five billion
will own a mobile phone.
But this revolu!on has a dark side, hidden from
most consumers. In an inves!ga!on that spans the
globe, filmmaker Sue Williams inves!gates the un‐
derbelly of the electronics industry and reveals how
even the smallest devices have deadly environmen‐
tal and health costs. The film tells a story of environ‐
mental degrada!on, of health tragedies, and the
fast approaching !pping point between con‐
sumerism and sustainability.

Producers:
Laura Hartrick, Craig Atkinson
Star!ng on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, as the
community grapples with the death of Michael
Brown, "Do Not Resist" offers a stunning look at the
current state of policing in America and a glimpse
into the future.
The Tribeca Film Fes!val winner for Best Documen‐
tary puts viewers in the center of the ac!on — from
a ride‐along with a South Carolina SWAT team and
inside a police training seminar that teaches the im‐
portance of “righteous violence” to the floor of a
congressional hearing on the prolifera!on of mili‐
tary equipment in small‐town police departments
— before exploring where controversial new tech‐
nologies, including predic!ve policing algorithms,
could lead the field next.
