The True Cost Showing: Documentary and Discussion on the Fast Fashion Industry

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 of fast fashion and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing? The True Cost examines the social aspect of environmental justice and sustainability on a global scale.

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.

This powerful, free film will be followed by a short discussion.

Part of the week-long "People, Planet, Future" event organized by the ESP.
