UCDVO Development Film Series 2016, Dublin


UCD Volunteers Overseas presents The True Cost

Monday, February, 22, 2016, 6pm
University College Dublin Cinema, Belfield, Dublin, Ireland
FREE and open to the public
Post-screening Q&A featuring Kate Nolan, Co-Founder of RE-DRESS

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.

The fourth UCDVO Development Film Series will take place in the UCD Student Centre Cinema in February 2016. We have an exciting line up of 5 cutting edge films and guest-speakers who will lead a Q&A session after each screening. Films are being screened every Monday at 6pm, starting on the 1st of February until the 29th of February 2016.

The aim of the series is to bring vibrant and gripping cinema documentaries to a UCD audience in order to generate awareness and discussion on the important global issues which each film explores.

Seats must be reserved in advance at developmentforum@ucdvo.org

This event is free of charge.
