Film: "The True Cost"
Start Date: 5/18/2017Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 5/18/2017End Time: 1:30 PM


The True Cost is a story about clothing. It's about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the fashion industry is having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. This groundbreaking documentary film pulls back the curtain on this untold story and asks us to consider: Who really pays the price for our clothing? This special screening is being held in conjunction with International Museum Day. The museum will join others across the world to reflect on the 2017 theme,"Museums and Contested Histories: Saying the Unspeakable in Museums.” (Andrew Morgan, 2015, 92 minutes.)

This program is part of the museum's weekly Textiles at Twelve series, which explores the textile arts and global cultures through films, lectures, gallery talks, and more. Free; no reservations required.
