UUF Screens ‘The True Cost’ in Movies that Matter Series

A free screening of The True Cost, a 2015 documentary directed by Andrew Morgan, will be shown at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Ephraim on Dec. 20 at 4:30 pm.

The True Cost is a global documentary that explores the fashion industry around the world, examining where we are, how we got here, and how we can create a better future moving forward. Clothing is the most labor-dependent industry in the world, employing millions of the world’s poorest workers, many of which are women. Many of these women are paid less than a living wage, work in unsafe conditions, and are deprived of basic human rights. In addition to the human impact, fashion is now the number two most polluting industry on earth – second only to oil. This groundbreaking investigation of “fast fashion” reveals that while the price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically.

The film is part of the monthly Movies That Matter series examining a wide range of issues. Each screening is followed by a discussion. Donations to help defray the costs of public performance licensing are appreciated. The UU Fellowship is located at 10341 Hwy. 42 in north Ephraim. For more information call 920.854.7559.
