The Shirt on Your Back

A documentary about the Rana Plaza disaster and the global garment industry.

It was the worst industrial accident anywhere in the world for a generation – on 24 April 2013 a factory building on the outer edges of Dhaka collapsed. More than 1,130 people were killed and thousands more were injured. They were making clothes sold in western high street stores – right now, you could be wearing something made by one of them.

Combining compelling archive footage with original photography, interactive data and written editorial, this is a thought-provoking look at the human impact of the fast fashion industry.
