Winter Film Series – Cotton Road

Join us for a thought-provoking Winter Film Series featuring filmmakers and the fashion industry focused documentaries they’ve created. From environmental and human rights challenges to how technology is changing the fashion map, we’ll explore the future of fashion over film, organic popcorn, wine and Q&A’s with the filmmakers themselves.

This winter film series is sponsored by sustainable fashion and design site, Ecouterre.

For our kick off film, Cotton Road director Laura Kissel ventures north from her home in South Carolina to screen the movie for us, engage in a post-film Q&A as well as host a fun post-holiday clothing swap.

Bring 5-10 of your best duds to trade with others and help make a dent in the textile waste stream by re-using! All leftover clothing will be donated to Wearable Collections, a NYC based company focused on keeping clothing, textiles and shoes out of landfills while generating funds for charities.

From the Cotton Road Website:

“Americans consume nearly 20 billion new items of clothing each year. Yet few of us know how our clothes are made, much less who produces them. Cotton Road follows the commodity of cotton.”

Check out the trailer here and this interview with the Cotton Road director on Ecouterre here.
