The Cobalt Syndicate
45' (GER, ENG subs)
The film investigates how the materials for e-cars are obtained, discovering that there is a significant need for the mineral cobalt. Almost all of this material is being mined in one of the world’s poorest countries, the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Child labor, violence, and corruption are prominent factors in the labor industry here, but will this sway Automanufaturers from doing business here?
