Over the past decade, smartphones, tablets, and laptops have taken the world by storm, presenting consumers with a ceaseless parade of communication improvements, on demand entertainment options, and non-stop information. By 2020, five billion people, over 70% of the world’s population, will own a smartphone. The rise of Silicon Valley’s technology industry has transformed business practices, democratized information dissemination, and changed the way we interact with friends and family. Even as it brings enormous benefits, the information revolution has come at a substantial environmental and health cost. Both the production and disposal of our gadgets create enormous waste, much of which is dumped in developing countries each year, and demanding production schedules strain the limits of worker capacity, often overriding health and safety concerns.

In her new film “Death by Design,” director and producer Sue Williams explores the tech global supply chain in a quest to assess the consequences of our digital dependence. On December 13, Ms. Williams will join the National Committee for a screening of her film, followed by a short reception and a panel discussion on the consumer electronics industry, the making of the film, and possible policy solutions to unsustainable consumption.

Talking Movies Film Series: Screening of The Ottoman Lieutenant followed by a Q&A

Open to the NYIT Community! Please email aob@nyit.edu to reserve seats!

A strong-willed woman, frustrated by ongoing injustice at home, leaves the United States after meeting Jude, an American doctor who runs a remote medical mission within the Ottoman Empire -- a world both exotic and dangerous, and on the brink of what is about to become the first World War. There, she finds her loyalty tested to both Jude and the mission's founder when she falls in love with their perceived enemy, a lieutenant in the Ottoman Imperial Army.
