Blood in the Mobile is a 2010 documentary film by Danish film director Frank Piasecki Poulsen. The film addresses the issue of conflict minerals by examining illegal cassiterite mining in the North-Kivu province in eastern DR Congo. In particular, it focuses on the cassiterite mine in Bisie.[1]

The film is co-financed by Danish, German, Finnish, Hungarian and Irish television, as well as the Danish National film board.

The film premiered in Denmark on September 1, 2010. During the making of the film Frank Piasecki Poulsen is working with communications professional and new media entrepreneur Mikkel Skov Petersen on the online campaign of the same name.

The campaign is addressing Poulsen and Petersens notion of the responsibility of the manufacturers of mobile phones on the situation in war torn eastern Congo. The project is collaborating with NGOs like Dutch-based Make It Fair and British-based Global Witness who are also engaged in changing the conduct of Western companies regarding the industrial use of minerals of unknown origin.

The cassiterite dug out in the illegal mines in North-Kivu is according to Danish corporate monitor organization Danwatch [2] primarily purchased as tin by the electronics industry after processing in East Asia.

Apart from trying to raise awareness of the issue of illegal mining and alleged lack of corporate social responsibility from the mobile phone industry, the campaign is an attempt to experiment with new ways of building an audience and create additional funding for documentary films.

The production of the film and the campaign is run in association with Danish new media company Spacesheep, founded in 2009 by Poulsen and Petersen in association with major Danish independent TV and film production company Koncern.Blood in the Mobile is a 2010 documentary film by Danish film director Frank Piasecki Poulsen.

As a recent electrical engineering graduate, it's daunting yet striking to realize that pain and suffering underlie my chosen occupation and that pleasure and flourishing can exist because of it. Materials, regardless of if they are used to make electronic and electrical goods, are imperative to achieving a sustainable future.

In the future, these sustainability aspects need to be discussed in colleges and universities. Students should be made aware of the sorts of affairs they are getting into before committing to tens of thousands of dollars in debt. At my own university, if I could start over and get my degree again, I would be delighted and inspired to take this challenge head on. There are lots of problems, which means one thing: there are lots of solutions. And engineers love to solve problems.

Looking forward, electric vehicles are only going to make conflict mineral extraction worse. I started to evaluate PHEVs and BEVs myself before COVID, hoping to switch from my gas guzzler to a more sustainable transportation option. Looked for the best batteries in terms of minimized Cobalt, battery chemistries like LiFePO4 or NMC-811. But like the CSR head at Nokia said, to make the wisest, most practical, least risky decision, it's good to know the full scope of the global material flows. Do people know where the plastics in their dashboard come from? The rubber in their tires? Were these recycled? Where will our cars go after they are no longer useful, and will this have any other human/biodiversity/environmental consequences?

It's going to take time, but I agree with Frank Poulsen: if Nokia really wanted to be the leading competitor in the mobile phone industry, then they would hire the best of the best engineers, designers, communicators, scientists, analysts, and leaders to get the job done. I for one don't want to work at a company that doesn't recognize the horrors occurring around the world.

Great doc, hope everyone else enjoyed it ✌

This documentary is not accurate and is trying to blow up things to its own benefit by creating a bigger problem than it is. Most Coltan comes from Brazil, Australia and Canada. Only a small amount comes from Congo.
@davidecolnaghi4859 2022-01-09 16:19:31  0
It's the same for other minerals like gold, tungsten, tin, cobalt (that is used too in smartphones, PC etc.) that mostly comes from DRC (from one to two-third). However, even if the percentage was small, the problem would still be very big because you (and me and all the others) are still benefitting from this because all the society is run by electronics and every action you do with your device involve countless other electronics devices (for example this video was uploaded by another person and broadcast by google server so you can see it) and you can't know where the minerals comes from.
P.S. english is not my first language, maybe there are some errors.

And the sad thing is that Nokia is not in the picture anymore. I think it is because they were a bit more human and tried to make the difference. But now we have the Chinese as the leaders and you know how well the Chinese care about these things. Its is situations like these, that makes me question the argument that Consipiracy theiorists are wrong. I have to say that we exported stuff to China so that the elite of the world could get away without answering such difficult questions. A chinese company can hide well behind the communist curtain. The Elites of the world are its SCUM.
And when you and I as normal citizens are sitting in our houses wondering about our future, remember this. If we dont take any action, take some of the power back as we are told in our democracies we will be made to pay. The Covid pandemic is just the start.. Nature will be ruthless...
@IdeaBoxful 2020-09-05 11:13:55  0
And we all are paying a price for not having a conscience! Dont let these companies guide the moral compass of the world! If we think that there are no consequences for our callous treatment of other beings, we are mistaken. The human consciousness is not an individual and what he or she feels. It is a collective and when one part of it is suffering without being heard, nature intervenes. If we dont learn anything from our experiences now, we are doomed as a civilization. We in India, call it Karma. There is a price to pay. The universe never forgets... We also call it a "Shapa" - a curse. When people who are oppressed and downtrodden upon, lets out their cries of anguish and if there is nobody to take their cause, nature will. And then it gains momentum and force and lets out disasters on the world. Modern science is narrow and childish so ensconced in its own importance. And the economy is like that of a child with its toy, we only know how to destroy. Creation as a process of destroying the old will eventually fail. So when those of you in the developed nations sit and brood about the future and that of your children, be aware, your apathy and ignorance is the cause. For gorging on the bounties of nature based on artificially created norms of value, that are nothing but speculation and numbers in computer. And supporting causes and isms that make your life comfortable, you will have to confront the outcomes of "Shapa" too. Nature will do its will and drive such irresponsible behaviour into dust.
Look at the number of mental issues you are facing in the midst of plenty. You run after fake gurus and "Yoga" looking for what we used to call "Moksha". It wont come your way till you learn and is humbled. And humbled we will be....

the problem is not the companies the problem is the congo that have been in war for hundreds of years if not the minerals this people kill themselves over nothing. too much corruption in congo and that is the problem. Lets say lets invade congo and put a republic system instead of democratic that will free the people in congo, but that will never happened. The UN are corrupt the military in the congo all are corrupt so do the blame where it belongs. it is easy to say lets stop this minerals in the congo but then again people will starve and no change will happened cause they will kill each other for no reason. poverty is the cause and if people realize that there will be more options to find a solution

Great film! My career is in the mining industry. It is a challenging and often messy industry, but as a whole, it is necessary to provide the raw materials we consume in our daily lives. Look around--everything around us came from the Earth. No rational person can be anti-mining entirely, just as we cannot be anti-agriculture; we need electrical wires, steel, and rubber tires, just like we need food. The important questions are: How will we obtain these materials? Which countries and private industries will perform this service? Where, geographically, can we be most certain that mining is done in an environmentally and socially humane way? Can we consume less? Etc. If we start with the premise that materials don't appear magically out of thin air and that recycling, while a great option to supplement supply chains has limitations, we understand that we need to mine if we want these lifestyles. That's why I actually ENCOURAGE mining in developed countries such as the United States, Canada, Australia, European countries, and certain countries in South America. These are the jurisdictions where we are finally able to hold companies accountable for environmental protection and humane treatment of workers. Mining in the western world isn't perfect, but we've made tremendous improvements of the last century and continue to show progress. When opposition to domestic mining becomes insurmountable, the burden of producing these materials is outsourced to other countries, some of them not so savory. That's one truth this film reveals. I encourage people to keep an open mind about mining in the developed world, and realize the topic is nuanced.

I really hope people would react to it and be aware of this so these huge companies would shut down or stop doing it and get an alternative solutions like maybe have a rules. Rules like not inventing things that includes other people's sufferings and presidents who are corrupt should be banned.
