Please support this film! Here is a brief description:”The Cotton Film : Dirty White Gold – a feature documentary by trouble-maker and journalist Leah Borromero, about Indian cotton farmer suicides [of which there have been nearly 300,000], pesticides and fashion. Our film will unpick why up to 26 Indian farmers a day have committed suicide and will trace the clothes we wear from seed to shop. We’ll be meeting cotton farmers, suppliers, loan sharks, manufacturers, designers, economists, environmentalists, corporations, shoppers – everyone from the fields and factories of India to the high streets and catwalks of London. We want to connect these suicides with the contents of our wardrobes and find out what we can do stop them happening – we will show how you can both look good and do good.”
A film that strives to encourage transparency in supply chains.
