The True Cost Documentary Screening, Kent State University


Kent State United Students Against Sweatshops presents The True Cost

Wednesday, February 17, 7:30pm
Bowman Hall Room 203, Kent State University, Kent, Ohio

Join Kent State USAS Local #27 in our screening of The True Cost documentary! We will learn about the real pricetag of fast fashion and it's impacts on workers. This event will be taking place February 17th at 7:30 in Bowman Hall 203. Snacks will be provided :)

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, Vandana Shiva and Richard Wolff, 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.
