With a deep love of all things technology the American population simple does not know about the dark underbelly of one of the wealthiest and high-end areas of the country. Silicon Valley is home to thousands of technology companies. Apple, Microsoft and a myriad of other recognizable brands have all set up shop in Silicon Valley. “Secrets of Silicon Valley” is a non-narrated documentary that takes a look at two of the small time players in the tech world; a manager of a computer training program and a migrant worker. Both have their own stories about the dark world of the technology age.
The film is a gripping and interesting look at the world of high-tech and how it affects the low-income population of the world, but for some reason the film never garnered a great amount of attention. It, like many other expose-style documentaries, received a good amount of internet-hype but lacked the backing of large production companies to truly reach the masses. There are thousands of truly astounding documentaries mad each year that never reach high viewership, but their message and production remain important. To check out this and other similar films do a quick internet search and you will find a myriad of documentaries that can be viewed online.
