About the film

Filmed in 2010, the film explores the exploitation of garment workers in Bangladesh. Majid and York tell the stories of three, young women, working in factories in Dhaka, giving a voice to people that have experienced first hand working in terrible and unethical conditions, all for the price of fashion.

This exposé of the dark truths of a seemingly 'glamourous', fashion industry is truly eye-opening. The Machinsts, highlights the perpetual lack of transparency within the fashion industry, as well as answering really important questions about who makes the clothes that we all buy without considering their origin. 

Note: Please arrive on time so you have a chance to get a drink and a seat before we start the film!

This film screening is the first of multiple events happening across Brighton Fashion Revolution Week, curated by Revival Collective.
