Powerful film “The True Cost” on clothing industry to hit U.S. theaters, VOD platforms, DVD/Blu-ray on May 29

Powerful Documentary “The True Cost” About the Human and Environmental Costs of Fashion to Hit Select U.S. Theaters, VOD Platforms and to be released on DVD/Blu-ray on May 29
***
The film’s trailer is being released today, coinciding with Fashion Revolution Day – commemorating the Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh – taking place in 60+ countries worldwide.

The True Cost will also be featured at the Cannes market this month.

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.

On May 29, The True Cost from director Andrew Morgan will be released in theaters in New York (IFC Center), Los Angeles (Laemmle Music Hall) and other markets and simultaneously will be released on VOD platforms and DVD/Blu-ray (at www.truecostmovie.com).

Additional Info On The True Cost
The documentary is focused on the fashion industry around the world, examining where we are (including the mind-blowing fact that we have seen a 500% increase in clothing consumption in the past two decades), how we got here (including how the U.S. went from producing over 90% of its clothing in the 1960s to just 3% today), and how we can create a better future moving forward.

Filmmaker Andrew Morgan introduces audiences to the surprising human and environmental impacts of the global fashion industry - including the trend of “fast fashion” from leading companies like H&M, Zara, Gap and other global clothing retailers - and simultaneously shows us what some remarkable individuals are doing across the globe to offer an alternative in the form of designers like Stella McCartney, fashion executives, activists and journalists who are pushing for an ethical and sustainable future for global fashion.
