In June of 2009, I was contacted by Cosima of Mediapro, (based in Barcelona, Spain), about
a documentary she is working on about the ever-shrinking lifespan
of consumer products.. This film will feature stories from the
US, Germany, France and Spain and be shown in several European
countries plus Australia. The pictures you see below were taken
as her team filmed firemen, and members of the bulb committee.
I for one, had a great visit with them, sharing my personal antique
bulb collection, and enjoyed the filming!
In the US you can buy The Light Bulb Conspiracy here:
And the French and German versions are available here,
under the titles Prêt à jeter / Kaufen für die Müllhalde:
Spanish version (Comprar, tirar, comprar):
