"Desperately Seeking White Zone" (DVD; F 2014)


“Desperately Seeking White Zone” is a 58-minute documentary about electrosensitive people and their search for a place to live in:

Alerted by a friend who no longer saw herself able to perform all kinds of activities, director Marc Khanne toured France for over three years to portray people who had become electrosensitive. Due to various symptoms, they were forced to move, and therefore in some cases also to abandon work and family.
Faced with a phenomenon poorly-known and still a source of controversy, Marc Khanne opted for a simple, human approach: a series of portraits and stories of obvious suffering drawing the picture of a disturbing reality.

Have a break, have no Wi-Fi

A marketing campaign by Kit Kat: “Have a break, have no Wi-Fi”. The brand installed a couple of “Wi-Fi free” spots in Amsterdam to encourage people to have a real conversation instead of texting. Well, great message, but they replaced one devil with another: In a city like Amsterdam it’s a vain endeavour to create a REAL Wi-Fi free area in public places. Therefore they installed Wi-Fi jammers which blocked all signals within a radius of 5 metres. Result: no mobile connection due to an added microwave signal.

Searching for a Golden Cage

Latest research of David Carpenter of the University of Albany and several other scientists around the world have shown that 2-3 % of the population reacts hypersensitive to electromagnetic fields. Tendency: rising. This shows that it’s not just about a few “imaginary invalids”, but rather about a phenomenon which – apart from a conscious and reduced use of wireless technology in the home environment – should be addressed by the creation or the protection of microwave-free “white zones”:
