Documentary Film: The True Cost, 7 August 2016

Fair Trade Los Angeles and the AMC Creation Care Team, The True Cost

Present the Documentary Film

 “The True Cost”

 WHEN: Sunday, August 7, 6:30 pm

WHERE: St. Kateri Room.

WHO: All are welcome but some of the subject matter is not suited for young children.

WHAT: This film is a story about clothing.  It’s 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.

The showing will be followed by a panel’s reflections about the film and a Q & A period.

This film is not appropriate for youngsters.

The panelists are:

  • Mike Farid, Owner of Nature USA and America’s first Fair Trade certified factory and a Fair Trade Los Angeles Member.
  • Sica Schmitz, Founder Curator of Bead & Reel, an Ethical Boutique and a Fair Trade Los Angeles Member.
  • A representative from the Garment Worker Center of Los Angeles.


  • Katie Bond, Fair Trade Member and founder of Peace Exchange, a fair trade company with sewing centers in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

NOTE: Refreshments will be served and good will offerings will be accepted.  For questions and further details, please email Tony Fadale at
