THE TRUE COST, featuring a post-film discussion with Hiroko Kurihara, Lewis Perkins, Lynda Grose, and Matt Reynolds (Doc Night)
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.

This film features a post film discussion. Here's a little about the panelists:

Lynda Grose is a Professor of Fashion Design at CCA with a focus on sustainability.  She is also the co-author of a well known book "Fashion and Sustainability, Design For Change" and works with the Sustainable Cotton Project on Market Outreach.

Lewis Perkins is the Senior Vice President of Cradle to Cradle Innovation Institute which is one of the most respected certifications that can be achieved for industry sustainability.

Matt Reynolds is the Co-Founder of Indigenous an established Fair Trade and Eco Friendly clothing company that works with small communities in South America.  

Hiroko Kurihara is an active member of the local textile production industry.  She is the Founder of the 25th St Collective, Oakland Sewn and works with Fibershed a project focused on sourcing textiles within the bay area.
