The True Cost

(2015, 92 mins, DCP)
Director:
Classification: 19+

This is a story about clothing. It’s about the clothes we wear, the people who make them and the impact the industry is having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. Andrew Morgan’s The True Cost is a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on an untold story and asks us to consider who really pays the price for our clothing?

Filmed in countries all over the world, from the brightest runways to the darkest slums, and featuring interviews with the world’s leading influencers including Stella McCartney, Livia Firth and Vandana Shiva, The True Cost is an unprecedented project that invites us on an eye-opening journey into the lives of the many people and places behind our clothes.

A portion of proceeds will be donated to Battered Women’s Support Services and the screening will include a pop-up shop by My Sister’s Closet.

"A distressing overview of the consequences of our addiction to fast fashion… The True Cost stirs and saddens." Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
