'THE TRUE COST'

The Davis Center at Williams College presents the film "The True Cost," a documentary that reconfigures our understanding of the clothing industry’s impact on the world. The film is free and open to the public and will be shown in Paresky Auditorium. The screening will be followed by a facilitator-led discussion. Tickets are not required. In "The True Cost," internationally recognized filmmaker Andrew Morgan reveals the story behind the clothing we wear and the people who make them. As the price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, the human and environmental costs have grown: low-wage workers are regularly exploited and pollution and contamination have become inevitable byproducts of the fast fashion industry. The film asks consumers to reconsider who really pays the price for our clothing.
