Grab your lunch and join us to learn about modern slavery and human trafficking globally. We will be showing two separate documentaries:
"The True Cost" directed by Andrew Morgan.
This is a story about clothing-- 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?
"Not My Life" directed by Robert Bilheimer and narrated by Glenn Close.
Not My Life depicts the horrifying and dangerous practices of human trafficking and modern slavery on a global scale. Filmed on 5 continents over a period of 4 years, combining testimony from survivors, opinion and analysis from their advocates with vivid depictions of the exploitation, Not My Life is a powerful indictment of the global trade in human beings and the abuse of vulnerable people.
This event is held on the 5th floor of Vernon Smith Hall on the Arlington Campus within the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution space.
This event is organized by ArtWorks for Freedom, the School of Conflict Analysis and Resolution, and the University Libraries.
Film Screening Alternate Time 7:30 p.m. - 10 p.m., October 18.
