Director Statement

"This is a human rights issue stemming from the unequal distribution of wealth. Most people don’t understand the true cost of fast fashion. The garment workers shouldn’t be doing work that pushes them further down into poverty. [Their employment] should impact their life for the better. After working with Remake, it’s been harder for me to look at fashion in the same way. I'm being more careful. I hope we can make more films, and people can continue questioning the fashion industry. It's only when people begin to question, that things begin to change."
