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.


Gianormous thanks to our Needle Moving Sponsors.  We could not have launched this inaugural series without their generous support!


Tickets are $10 (proceeds benefit four local sustainability nonprofits).  Walk-ups welcome yet pre-registration really helps us avoid food waste!


Please SHARE with everyone you know! Let's fill the space up and have lots of people learn and discuss the true cost of clothing! Please like and share our Facebook event with your friends and email the event flyer to your wide network. Thank you in advance!
