Zurich - 20/03/2017: Film Screening – Complicit

Gerne macht Sie das Kompetenzzentrum Menschenrechte auf eine Veranstaltung der Amnesty International Hochschulgruppe Zürich aufmerksam.

Film Screening – Complicit

COMPLICIT was filmed over 3 years in China's electronics zones Shenzhen and Guangzhou with lush cinematography, hidden camera and unique access. The film takes the audience on an 8000-mile journey to the world's electronics factory floors, revealing the situations under which China's youth population has shifted by the millions in search of a better life. COMPLICIT’S main protagonist Yi Yeting is a former migrant worker struggling to survive occupational leukemia. He discovers a resource center that helps other workers in similar situations, poisoned by benzene and n-hexane. Deciding to work on the cases of several teenagers who worked on smartphones he brings his fight against benzene from his hospital room to Silicon Valley and the international stage. Against huge odds Yi directly confronts corporate and government interests, while empowering and inspiring the people around him.
