The True Cost

(FILM, 92 MIN.)

A 2015 documentary, directed by Andrew Morgan, focusing  on aspects of the garment industry ―  from production (mainly exploring the life of low-wage workers in developing countries) to its after-effects such as river and soil pollution, pesticide contamination, disease and death. Using an approach that looks at environmental, social and psychological aspects, it also examines consumerism and mass media, ultimately linking them to global capitalism. The documentary is a collage of several interviews with environmentalists, garment workers, factory owners, and people organizing fair trade companies or promoting sustainable clothing production.
