To raise awareness and support Fashion Revolution, the Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries and Portsmouth Film Society are hosting a special FREE screening of The True Cost documentary at the University of Portsmouth, Eldon Building Screening Room EW1.10 on Thursday 27th April at 6pm. Watch the outstanding trailer of the film.
The True Cost 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 film will be followed with a Q&A panel discussion with invited experts on sustainability in business, fashion and textiles including Fashion Revolution co-ordinator Dr Ian Cook and CCI’s Professor Deborah Sugg-Ryan. This screening takes place within three days of events and activities in support of Fashion Revolution Week 2017 at the University of Portsmouth, 26-30 April 2017. Please register for the screening on 27th April at Eventbrite here.
