The University of Westminster and LUPC invite you to join us at a special, private screening of Complicit – at the historic Regent Street Cinema on Tuesday, 20 June 2017 (18:00).
Made by Heather White and Lynn Zhang, Complicit tells the story of Yi Yeting, a former migrant worker struggling to survive occupational leukemia in China’s electronics factory zone. He discovers a resource centre that helps other workers in similar situations, poisoned by benzene and n-hexane. Deciding to work on the cases of several teenagers stricken while making smartphones he brings his fight against benzene from his hospital room to Silicon Valley and the international stage. Against huge odds Yi Yeting directly confronts corporate and government interests, while empowering and inspiring the people around him.
The screening, in support of Electronics Watch, the organisation monitoring global supply chains to protect human rights for public authorities, will be followed by a short Q&A forum with both filmmakers and experts, who will be on hand to answer your questions.
