River Blue - Film screening and discussion


August 22, 2018


This award-winning documentary spans the globe to uncover the dirty secret behind the manufacturing of our blue jeans. Narrated by clean water supporter Jason Priestley, RiverBlue follows international river conservationist, Mark Angelo, on a journey that uncovers the dark side of the fashion industry. Speaking with fashion designers and water protectors world-wide, RIVERBLUE reveals stunning and shocking images that truly change the way we look at how our clothing is made. This groundbreaking documentary examines the destruction of our rivers, its effect on humanity, and the solutions that inspire hope for a sustainable future. An exquisitely crafted, fascinating, emotional and moving documentary turned global agent for change.

Join us for a screening of this film with a short presentation by the Upper Canada Fibreshed about local textile communities organizing for change.
