June 2 – The True Cost

May 6th, 2019

This documentary film by Andrew Morgan explores the impact of the fashion industry on people and the planet. Morgan inspects the damage caused by the fashion industry and consumers desire for inexpensive, fast fashion. Cheap fashion drives the industry’s worst behavior, which often exploits poor workers, exposes them to factory hazards and contributes to environmental pollution.

Filmed all over the world, from runways to slums, this film features interviews with fashion influencers and the lives of many people and places involved in the creation of our clothing.

Fashion addicts, people concerned with worker’s rights and others will be enlightened by this powerful film.
