Tickets: $5 donation
Post-film discussion featuring Bethany Collins, Catholic Relief Services; Jill Johnson, Ten Thousand Villages; and others. Facilitated by Rachel Lyons, Organizer, Mission for Social Justice at Old St. Patrick’s Church

The True Cost is 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?

This film is suitable for general audiences and high school+. Post-film program to include discussion with Old St. Patrick’s Solidarity Market and fair trade vendors. Hear from Bethany Collins, Catholic Relief Services; Jill Johnson, Ten Thousand Villages; and others. Facilitator: Rachel Lyons, Organizer, Mission for Social Justice at Old St. Patrick’s Church. Light refreshments will be served.

One Earth Film Festival is the Midwest’s premier environmental film festival, creating opportunities for understanding climate change, sustainability and the power of human involvement. We showcase top-issue, thought-provoking environmental films and lead audiences in interactive post-film discussions focused on solutions.
