6pm Film Screening of Handprint by Livia Firth.
Handprint is a powerful short film, shot by talented Director Mary Nighy, which compels viewers to confront the origins of their clothes. The film was commissioned by Eco-Age’s Creative Director and Founder of the Green Carpet Challenge Livia Firth, who asked Mary to interpret the ethical and social issues in the fashion supply chain. Produced by Stephen Whelan and Serena Noorani at White Lodge, it was co-written with Creative Director Zoe Franklin. Model and sustainability champion Elettra Wiedemann leads this short. In light of this year’s tragedy at the Rana Plaza factory in Bangladesh, this film could not be more poignant, as it asks the consumer to be curious and consider their decisions when buying.
