“Digital Handcraft” is an eductional film that portraits the process of 
Computer hardware production. It displays the organisation of 
production in global value chains and investigates the conditions of 
live and labour for millions of migrant worker in Chinas factories 
which manifacture the hardware for the immaterial production of the 
21st century. This film takes a look at the flipside of globalised 
computer production, which does not go along with the ‚clean’ image the 
industry usually displays. By interviewing activists and workers alike, 
the film investigates the current situation as well as future 
possibilities to improve their situation. Furthermore, the film looks 
at issues of illegale shipping of computer scrap parts from Germany to 
developing countries.
