We are excited to be screening of The True Cost as part of the Celebrations for International Women’s Day in collaboration with SOAS’s South Asia Institute and Asian Circle. 

TrueCost_FilmStill_06The True Cost is a story about the clothes we wear, the people who make them and the impact it’s having on our world. This powerful film explores the issues of an industry built on exploitation, makes us ask questions about our consumption and challenges what we thought we knew about the industry.
