Fair Share Festival 2016, Newcastle, Australia


Transition Newcastle presents The True Cost

Thursday, November 10, 7:30pm
Newcastle Museum, Newcastle, Australia
Entry by donation. Donations of $5-$10 AUD appreciated.
Post-screening discussion with Jane Milburn from the national Slow Clothing Movement

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.

Jane Milburn (from the national Slow Clothing Movement) will speak after the documentary.

The screening is part of the Fair Share Festival.

Entry is by donation, but to cover costs we would appreciate $5 to $10 per person. If this is too much please pay what you can.
