“The Lightbulb Conspiracy” – documentary about planned obsolescence

Written and directed by Cosima Dannoritzer, this film documents the history of built-in obsolescence, using the light bulb as a prime example of consumer products built to break down.  Have you ever wondered why appliances stop working as soon as the warranty runs out?   Mass consumerism and planned obsolescence has led to mountains of waste and the depletion of resources that were once thought to be unlimited.
