First released in 2017, “COMPLICIT” has been screened at 40 film festivals and has won nine international festival awards. Shortly after the documentary’s release, Apple agreed to ban the use of benzene and n-hexane in its cellular phone production, but do these factories continue to ignore Chinese regulations?

From our Founder & President: “At Environmental Health Trust, we frequently speak about the effects of wireless technology on individual users. This film is important to learn about how the entire production process shortcuts safety in the name of a technology, that no one demanded, but everyone is now addicted to using,” said Dr. Devra Davis, founder, and president of Environmental Health Trust. “If we are going to be reliant on this technology, it’s imperative that information and telecommunications companies support the health and welfare of its workers and end-users. We have to demand better from them.”Visit our website
