Details

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?

The Documentary Club screens documentaries made by independent film makers addressing a wide range of cultural, political and social issues. This is intended to broaden the perspectives of Brookes’s students and to engage with the broader community beyond OBU.

Each Thursday during the 2017-18 academic year at 7pm in the John Henry Brookes Lecture Theatre, Headington Campus, we screen a range of documentaries for FREE.

We welcome students, staff and members of the public to join the team of volunteers throughout the year.
