Fashion Revolution Film Evening on Textile Thursday - Aprile 21, 2016, kl. 18.00 @Textile Fsahion Center, Borås

On TextileThursday, during Fashion Revolution Week, we invite you to a screening of three shorter documentaries giving important insights to a different side of the glamourous fashion industry.

When people in the West throw their clothes away, their cast-offs often go on a journey east, across the oceans, to India’s industrial interior to be recycled. With little exposure to Western culture the garment recyclers rely on their imagination and the rumours that travel with the cast-offs to create an an intriguing perspective on the West. Director: Meghna Gupta

A lot of our clothes bear the label ‘Made in Bangladesh’. But before the deadly collapse of a garment factory there on Aprile 24, 2013, most of us never thought about the people who make them. Journalist Mark Kelley, from The Fifth Element, went to Bangladesh after the collapse of Rana Plaza for exclusive behind the scenes interviews with workers and the jailed owner of one of the biggest factories inside Rana Plaza.
