Human Rights Watch Film Festival: MADE IN BANGLADESH (free)
Directed by Rubaiyat Hossain.
A film that takes you behind that T-shirt you just bought on sale for $9.99, to reveal the human labor, sweat, and suffering that went into it.
As H&M, Zara, Uniqlo and other fast fashion brands continue to dominate the globe, an army of underpaid workers, the majority of them women, produce their merchandise at a discount. But what happens when these women, emancipated by employment opportunities that previously didn’t exist, and motivated by dangerous, sometimes deadly, working conditions decide to fight the powers that be?
All Human Rights Watch Film Festival screenings are free, and tickets can be reserved in advance on the Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema website. For more HRWFF films and information, please visit: https://ff.hrw.org/toronto.
