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 worlds 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.

    So what is the answer? We are now being told it is in the social entrepreneurial sector, the good business chapter of dupe ’em and drain ’em. Human beings inherited a story of god/kings and lesser beings. This looks a lot like like other animal groups that are organized in hierarchies for a so called common good. Ok, so what if that phase, that cycle of who we are is over? What if together , we can really change our ideas about who we are and why we are here? Because right now the profit max game is way too ugly, too limiting and tooo ignorant of its own truth to continue! Ego based on a material facade is just backwards and a New Story can be actualized by helping each other help each other do just that!. I have a few ready to roll but that is the problem, the “I” without the other is old story. Together we learn more than we do on our own.
