"Can Smartphones Grow On Trees?" A Pivotal Documentary for the Disruptive Innovation Festival.
"Nearly every component in a modern hi-tech device has a biological equivalent. For example: DNA molecules store information and screens could be made from octopus camouflage systems. Does this mean that we could make hi-tech devices out of biomaterials? Starring Dr Chris Forman who explores this bizarre notion and his vision for how we could emulate biological manufacturing on our own and more importantly, why it's so important for going circular."
Produced in collaboration with Jonnie Howard Film.
