June 9th Thursday 7 p.m. Film Night "The True Cost"
This 2015 documentary by Andrew Morgan explores the impact of fashion on people and the planet.

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 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?
