Concern over the environmental hazards posed by disposal of electronics is nothing new but Sue Williams packages varied worries in a vital way in Death by Design, which sees the damage done both before and after that latest gadget has its brief life span in your possession.
Viewers may feel they've heard plenty about the importance of disposing of their old computers and TVs appropriately, but Williams has a much bigger agenda than pushing for e-waste recycling. Williams doesn't do the kind of investigative journalism that would single out individual decision makers at tech companies and hold them accountable for specific environmental travesties. Rather, she hopes to enlighten those whose dollars keep the gizmos coming and whose votes could elect regulation-minded legislators.
Rice Media Center, 2030 University Blvd, near Stockton and University.
