'The True Cost' Screening and Panel Discussion — 'Beneath the Seams' Adelaide


Beneath the Seams — Fairwear South Australia presents The True Cost

Monday, November 2, 6pm
Palace Nova Eastend Cinemas, Adelaide, Australia
Tickets: $15 AUD
Post-screening discussion featuring Bindy Taylor, Amy Roberts, and Dave Court

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. 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?

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 around the world and into the lives of the many people and places behind our clothes.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with members of Adelaide's ethical fashion community. The panelists are:

BINDY TAYLOR - Bindy is the President of My Sister's Scarf, an Adelaide-based not-for-profit. In 2013 she travelled to India with Stop the Traffik to hear stories of those affected by human trafficking in the textile industry. mysistersscarf.org.au

AMY ROBERTS - Amy is the director of Vege Threads, an Australian eco fashion label that focuses on sustainability and social awareness. Their Australian-made line is certified by Ethical Clothing Australia. www.vegethreads.com

DAVE COURT - Dave is an Adelaide-based artist who runs foolsandtrolls, a clothing label with a focus on art and design. All designs are manufactured in Adelaide and are certified by Ethical Clothing Australia. www.foolsandtrolls.com
