The Light Bulb Conspiracy

La cospirazione della lampadina
by Cosima Dannoritzer 2010 75'

Can a light bulb last forever? Why are computers thrown away instead of fixing them? The answer to both questions resides in planned obsolescence, a strategy geared to increase consumption. From rare archive film sequences and documents the film traces the history of a market stratagem devised in the 1920s which has resulted in today's environmental woes.<%YOUTUBE=Mx_QzvMcMLw%>
