Blood, Sweat and T-Shirts

1-3pm (16 years plus)
Directed by Robert McCourt. For the first time ever, six young fashion fanatics swap shopping for the backstreets of India to live and work with the people who make the clothes they wear. On this journey of discovery they start at a multi-million pound factory, that makes clothes for some of our biggest brands on the UK high street, earning for a ten hour day, just £2.

I am Slave

6.00 – 7.30 pm (Students)
This film is directed by Gabriel Range and has been chosen by students to be screened for Unchosen Film Festival. The film tells the story of one woman’s fight for freedom from modern-day slavery.

In Southern Sudan, young Malia is kidnapped by Mujahideen raiders. Taken to Khartoum, Malia is sold to a family, where she is subjected to extreme cruelty. Her father searches for her, in vain. When Malia turns eighteen, she is sent to London. Trapped and enslaved, her passport taken away, Malia only thinks of escape.

There will be a tour of ‘COTTON: Global Threads’ between 5:30pm and 5:55pm by a Knowledge Series student and a discussion and complimentary glass of wine after the film between 7:30 -8:30pm.
