  • "Bei der Herstellung von Mobiltelefonen werden viele Minerale verwendet, die aus dem Kongo importiert werden. Mit dem Kauf dieser sogenannten Konfliktminerale finanzieren die westlichen Industrienationen einen Bürgerkrieg, der seit 1996 im Kongo wütet. Mobilfunkkonzerne geben keine Garantie dafür ab, woher ihre Zulieferer ihre Ware beziehen. Die Handelskette bleibt undurchsichtig. "Blood in the Mobile" zeigt die Verbindung zwischen unseren Mobiltelefonen und dem Bürgerkrieg im Kongo. [arte]."

  • ""Americans love their mobile phones. They connect the population to family and friends, but also to the Democratic Republic of Congo, one of the most dangerous places on earth. Inside many mobile phones are illegally mined minerals, minerals that fuel conflict, create child slavery, and support other severe human rights abuses in the Congo. This riveting documentary reveals a mineral trade plagued with violence and human exploitation. The director takes on the Congolese military and corrupt warlords with barnstorming bravado to gain access to Bisie--a militia-controlled slave mine that produces cassiterite, a tin oxide used in cell phones--where as many as twenty-five thousand captive workers live in unimaginable squalor and fear. He takes his findings to the Finnish mobile phone giant Nokia, a company that nets up to 1.6 billion dollars in profits annually, with the hope that Nokia will stand behind its claims of sustainability. But Nokia refuses to acknowledge the use of 'blood' in the manufacture of their cellphones. Blood in the Mobile is a film about human courage, hope, and the search for solutions."--Filmakers Library."
  • "Im Kongo herrscht Krieg, schon seit Jahren. Und dieser äusserst brutale Bürgerkrieg, der bereits mehr als 5 Millionen Menschen das Leben gekostet hat, wird von allen beteiligten Gruppen durch den illegalen Handel mit Mineralien finanziert. "Blood in the mobile" geht der Verbindung zwischen unseren Mobiltelefonen und diesem Handel nach. Hierfür begibt sich der Regisseur Frank Poulsen persönlich in den Kongo, um vor Ort entgegen allen Warnungen und Gefahren die illegale Minenindustrie zu besichtigen: er bekommt Zugang zu der grössten Mine Bisie, von verschiedenen bewaffneten Gruppen kontrolliert, in denen Kinder tagelang in dunklen, engen Tunneln die Mineralien ausgraben, die später in unseren Telefonen landen. Nach seinem Besuch in der Mine versucht Frank Poulsen mehrfach mit Nokia, der grössten Mobilfunkfirma weltweit, in Kontakt zu treten. Er möchte ihr Versprechen, dass sie nicht Konfliktmineralien kaufen und damit den Bürgerkrieg im Kongo mitfinanzieren. Nokia kann es ihm nicht garantieren... (Quelle: Umschlagtext)."
