Built to Not Last (2022)
WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY Ryan Orizabal
Decades ago, business was blooming for many electronics repair companies. In the past, it wasn't very expensive to have ones VCR, cassette players, stereos and T.V. repaired. However, times have changed. Now a days, it's a lot cheaper to simply replace electronics than repair them.
The documentary “Built to Not Last” examines the current business of electronic repair companies. Through extensive interviews with electronic repairmen, the documentary will explore the progression of technology and its effect on electronics. It will also examine the challenges faced by repairmen to find parts for electronics that are now obsolete.
This highly anticipated documentary is a must see for all, especially those who refuse to contribute more waste to our disposable society.
