From Melissa Eidson
Slow Fashion documentary follows women artisans in villages on four different continents: Oaxaca in southern Mexico, Guinea in West Africa, Vientiane, Laos and Jaipur, India. A host of sustainable designers, activists and UN sustainability specialists espouse their own views on fashion circularity and the connection to climate regeneration in the fashion capital of the world, New York City.
Issues of cultural appropriation and the commodifying of culture are explored as well as the relationships between woman artisans from remote villages and western designers, as new ways of doing business are created by community liaisons, progressive designers, scientists, and activists, who believe in fair and humane practices for the betterment of people and the planet.
Slow Fashion is a documentary film made by Eme (Melissa) Eidson, from 2016 to 2020 with the help of many. The full hour length film will likely be screened virtually given the current crisis...more news soon at slowfashionfilm.com and Instagram: emeeidson
