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?
Written and directed by Brett Harvey – a Malabar Film Unit / o-region co-production – 76mins (15)

A documentary that follows undercover activists trying to stave off a man-made mass extinction.
Paul is a woodturner on The Register of Professional Woodturners and a member of the Made in Cornwall scheme. Working with mostly locally sourced native timbers to create one off pieces. Inspiration comes from seeing the grain in the timber and using it to its best effect, also from ancient and modern ceramics.
Three Falmouth artists working in different disciplines have joined
together to explore their responses to the idea of ‘Flow.
Jane Smith’s medium is glass and ceramic whilst Lesley Harry is a
print maker and Sue Davis, although initially working in ceramic, has
turned to painting and mixed media. For all three artists their move to
Cornwall fed their delight in the behavior of light and a fascination
with the transient quality of moving water.
David Axtell: As well as his illustrational work David has had a lifelong love of painting and now has an enviable reputation in Cornwall and beyond. With an interest in the relationship and interaction of people and the sea, David searches for an intriguing narrative that pulls the viewer in and makes us feel we’ve caught a glimpse of his figures in an unguarded moment.
