The True Cost - A Fashion Film
Thursday, November 12th, 2015
Venue Change: Secret Garden, 121 JONSON STREET BYRON BAY, NSW, AUSTRALIA
The True Cost is a feature length documentary film that explores the impact of fashion on people and the planet. This film is being screened by Helen O’Carroll, long time resident and business owner in Byron Bay. Many would remember Helen from her fashion stores Byron Hunter and Byron Swoon.
Helen’s aim is to offer the opportunity for people to have a good look and consider the current standard, and invites Q&A for the panel.
“You know how Fashion is becoming cheaper and cheaper? Well, what this movie does is show you why, and how… There is a renewed call for change in the garment industry. Although modern supply chains are a labyrinth and the horrors and problems seem insurmountable, we will propose options and tools to work with toward solutions we can make as individuals and to drive change. The current consumer demand is not sustainable from both an Humanitarian and environmental perspective”
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. - See more at: http://truecostmovie.com/about/
