92 min, US, Director Andrew Morgan.
Who Pays the Price for our Clothing? Ever wonder what inequities lurk behind the glamour and artistry of the fashion industry, how workers are faring in the global garment supply chain, or why clothing prices have dropped in a new era of “fast fashion?” Conscientious Projector joins with VisionLA Fest ’15 to answer these questions and more as we present the newly-released documentary The True Cost.
The film takes us to countries around the world to show how the human and environmental costs of manufacturing our clothes have risen dramatically. This cinematic call to action vividly illustrates that this is an industry in need of a justice makeover. Director Andrew Morgan has said, “Clothing is the most labor-dependent industry in the world, employing millions of the world’s poorest workers, many of whom are women. Many of these women are paid less than a living wage, work in unsafe conditions, and are deprived of basic human rights.”
A community discussion will follow this free screening, co-presented by Pasadena-based screening series Conscientious Projector.
