Clothes To Die For
“Clothes to Die For” is a documentary film about the worst industrial disaster of the 21st century – the collapse of the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh, in which more than 1100 people died and 2400 were injured. The eight storey building housed factories that were making clothes for many western companies.
Through a series of compelling interviews and unseen archive footage, 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.
Described by the Telegraph as “blunt and brilliant”, the film raises fundamental questions about the global fashion industry and the responsibilities of all those involved.
