Clothes To Die For Film Screening and Q&A

August 15, 2017 @ 6:45 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Join RMIT’s Fair Trade Coordinator for the screening of Clothes To Die For. A documentary film about the worst industrial disaster of the 21st century – the collapse of the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh. The film gives a voice to those directly affected, and highlights the greed and high-level corruption that led to the tragedy. It also provides an insight into how the incredible growth in the garment industry has transformed Bangladesh, in particular the lives of women.

To accompany the screening of Clothes To Die For, RMIT will host the ‘We are all connected’ Q&A. The panel will include speakers from ethical business, international development, climate justice and global trade backgrounds and will provide a critical reflection on the current global trading system and the connection between consumer and supplier.
