MEDIA: The Conscience of Clothing

"The Conscience of Clothing" is a documentary film project that aims to raise awareness about sustainability and fair fashion.

Cambodian garment workers often face precarious working conditions each day - from the dangers of getting to and from work, unfair wages and the balance of supporting their families and themselves. But what does «making fashion» mean to the people of Cambodia, whose work is mainly focused on exports to the global North?

The documentary film project "The Conscience of Clothing - Mode.Macht.Menschen." by director Patrick Kohl and Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung accompany fashion blogger Willy Iffland and journalist Helen Fares to Cambodia, where they meet workers, factory owners, and trade union activists who stand up for fair wages, freedom of opinion and assembly and safe working conditions.

The film thus provides a broad and intimate insight into the local garment industry and discusses not only corporate due diligence in global supply chains, but also topics such as egoism and consumption in real-life capitalism, intersectional feminism, and sustainability.
