Welcome to Sodom

Hundreds of thousands of mobile phones, LCD screens, TVs, notebooks, tablets, and computers become useless or quickly “out-of-date” and end up in Ghana every year, where children and adolescents dismantle them for “recycling.” Welcome to Sodom profiles the life of those who work in the brutal conditions, handling the world’s electronic waste, and what they endure to barely make enough money to survive. Many years before the wasteland, Ghana was a beautiful savanna with greenery and animals, now it’s a hell of fire, toxins, acrid smoke, plastic, and pollution, at the behest of the global economy and the technoculture that drives it.
