The True Cost is a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing?
"A portrait of exploitation."
Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
"Gut-wrenching and alarming."
"A sweeping, heartbreaking and damning survey of the clothing economy."
“It unravels the grim, gritty, global supply chain of fast fashion: a system that has injected the type of speed, disposability and price deflation that has directly led to the worst casualties in the industrial age.”
Lucy Siegle, The Guardian
"The ugliness beneath the glamour is exposed by this vitally important documentary...It is to be hoped that it will be seen by many and the all-important word will get out about a vital matter we all literally carry on our backs every day."
David Noh, Film Journal International
"An important incitement to action... I know of no other documentary that confronts the social, cultural, and environmental impacts of fast fashion so comprehensively or compellingly."
