DC Social Change Film Series: “The True Cost” on January 29th @ 7PM in Paresky Auditorium
Wed, January 29th, 2020
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join the Davis Center every month during the school year for a free film, discussion, and some thought-provoking content! This year, the Davis Center is working diligently to highlight a mainstream or independent film that speaks to issues of across various dimensions of diversity, including but limited to ideology, social identity, injustice, as well as prejudice and discrimination. We aim to give students and our community the opportunity to learn about social change through film – to thereby broaden or deepen our appreciation and understanding.
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.
