« Blood in the Mobile » is the 2011 Winner of the Cinema for Peace Justice Award and documents director Frank Piasecki Poulsen’s journey into DR Congo’s largest mine fuelled by child labour and militias followed by his struggle to work with Nokia to make a concious effort to stop buying conflict minerals.
« During the last 15 years the conflict has cost the lives of more than 5 million people and 300,000 women have been raped. The war will continue as long as armed groups can finance their warfare by selling minerals. » -Blood in the Mobile
