Talal Jabari, a Palestinian-American who has worked as a journalist, producer and creator of audio effects, has recently made his début as director with the film Full Signal, which won the prize for best documentary at the Myrtle Beach International Film Festival in December 2009.
As the number of people using mobile phones continues to grow, more and more base stations are being installed to meet the demand. Faced with the mounting conflict over the damaging health effects of artificial electromagnetic fields from HF microwave radiation, and the drop in property values where phone masts have been set up, the phone networks have found an emergency solution by disguising relay antennas in real or artificial trees, fake chimneys, etc. But however they try to hide it, this is the most serious worldwide health scandal in the beginning of the 21st century.
Full Signal gives the chance to speak out to scientific experts working on the health problems arising from mobile phone and phone mast radiation, also to campaigners battling against the presence of relay antennas in residential areas, to the electrosensitive (EHS), to government health authorities and to lawyers, who are obtaining more and more favourable verdicts in cases brought against the phone companies.
Through interviews with a widely representative range of people, this documentary highlights a growing awareness in the international community, who are finally beginning to pay attention to the problems arising from the proliferation of relay antennas, and becoming concerned about the now proven health hazards arising from this new form of serious environmental pollution.
