A global documentary, The True Cost investigates the effects of globalised production caused by the rapacious nature of “fast fashion”. Over the last two decades, it has become the world’s second most polluting industry – second only to oil. Worth an exponential $3 trillion dollars, the fast fashion industry operates on an inhumane supply chain with risks carried by the most vulnerable. Having been confronted by the 2013 Rana Plaza collapse in Bangladesh and the implications of such catastrophes, Andrew Morgan has crafted a documentary that exposes the grievous human rights violations apparent in the current system by interviewing those directly affected and others looking to make change from all across the world.
