Description

So...what really happens to our electronics when we dispose of them? Why not learn while you're out on the town!

CLAIM YOUR SPOT HERE!

Join us at Orlando Brewing on the evening of Saturday, July 27th for a screening of the award-winningdocumentary short, "Kofi & Lartey."

The film follows a pair of young best friends that grew up and work in the largest e-waste dump in the world. The incredible visuals let you into a heart wrenching, eye opening look at what happens to our tech when we toss it out and how it can impact lives across the world.

Proudly hosted by BatterEASE Foundation and IDEAS For Us.

"Kofi and Lartey are old friends who work on the e-waste dump and have a strong bond. Much of this has developed through working together on the dump by burning and dismantling e-waste and materials to extract precious metals to sell. Kofi and Lartey are a lively duo who don’t have dreams and ambitions outside of Agbogbloshie until they meet Abdallah who inspires them to hold a camera and tell their own story."
