This 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?

Filmed in countries all over the world, from the brightest runways to the darkest slums, and featuring interviews with the world’s leading influencers including Stella McCartney, Livia Firth and Vandana Shiva, The True Cost is an unprecedented project that invites us on an eye opening journey around the world and into the lives of the many people and places behind our clothes.

As Baltimore jumps knee deep into the struggle, the Black Lives Matter movement has evolved into the Black Spring. And in the media we are witnessing a polarizing debate about the acceptance, inevitability and effectiveness of the eruptions in the street. Unfortunately, the question is usually posed in very simplistic terms: For, or Against violence.

We need a deeper analysis, so this is the perfect time to watch Concerning Violence – an unforgettable film that combines unseen footage of the African liberation movements of the 20th century with Frantz Fanon’s deep analysis on the relationship between violence and resistance.

Doors open at 7:00, film goes on at 7:30
Screening is free, drinks are cheap, and free popcorn will be flowing!

Wynn will also present unique film and video from the Wolfson Archives that documents the Fontainebleau’s construction and opening, its popularity with celebrities and tourists and the context of its creation.
