e-wasteland

Where do our electronics go at the end of their life?

Every year, between 20–50 million tonnes of e-waste (electronic waste) are generated worldwide. A large volume of second-hand and condemned electronic goods arrive in developing countries from the “developed” world, with a significant volume arriving as e-waste, exported illegally as “second hand goods”.

This film presents a visual portrait of unregulated e-waste recycling in Ghana, West Africa, where electronics are not seen for what they once were, but rather for what they have become.

Filmed, produced and edited by David Fedele.
