In recognition of Fashion Revolution Week and in honour of the 1,133 people who died and the 2,500 who were injured when the Rana Plaza factory building in Bangladesh collapsed on 24 April 2013, PROJECT FUTURES has partnered with Fashion Revolutionand the Westpac Youth Network to bring you a heart-breaking, yet compelling film that opens our eyes to the global impact of fashion on people and the planet.
Millions of people work in the fashion industry and a single product may span multiple continents before reaching the shop floor. Most of us don’t know who makes our clothes and they don’t know who buys the clothes they make.
The True Cost is a ground breaking 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.
This is more than a screening. Not only do we want you enjoy yourself, but we also want you to help us take action and form part of the revolution. We want this to be both SERIOUS and FUN.
The Serious: At the conclusion of the film, there will be a short panel discussion with the Head of Fashion Revolution Australia & New Zealand, Melinda Tually along with other special guests.
The Fun: We are also encouraging everyone who attends the screening to wear their clothes inside out or turn their tops around to take a photo of your label just before the screening starts. Upload to instagram and ask your brand #whomademyclothes
There will also be a raffle with some fab prizes!
$25 PER TICKET / $35 INCLUDES POPCORN & A DRINK
All proceeds from the event will go to PROJECT FUTURES to support victims of human rights abuses in Australia and Cambodia.
