Blood in the Mobile

"Blood in the Mobile" is a documentary recently released in Europe that examines the link between mineral mines in eastern Congo and mobile phone manufacturing. In eastern Congo, film director Frank Poulsen visited a mine that is producing minerals to be sent to cell phone makers worldwide. Several factions are fighting for control of the mine and its profits. Cell phone companies are unable to guarantee that their materials do not come from mines that are funding the conflict.

Directed by Frank Piasecki Poulsen
