About The Event
Produced by award-winning co-director and producer Keegan Kuhn (Cowspiracy, What the Health, The End of Medicine), SLAY is a feature length documentary following investigative filmmaker Rebecca Cappelli as she travels around the world to uncover the unethical ways the leather, fur, and wool industries treat animals, workers, and the environment.
The showing will be followed by a discussion between Emma Hakansson, founder of Collective Fashion Justice, and Bel Jacobs, former fashion editor and co-founder of the Islington Climate Centre. In collaboration with Waterbear.
Spanning five continents, Rebecca's journey of discovery unravels a harrowing story of greenwashing, mislabeling, animal cruelty and cover-ups from some of the world's major luxury fashion brands.
SLAY provides an in-depth and eye-opening look into the realities of today’s fashion industry. It asks the important question: "is it acceptable to kill animals for fashion?" while pointing the way towards viable and sustainable alternatives.
Interviewees include inspiring experts within fashion sustainability and animal rights, with Samata Pattinson, Bandana Tewari, Dana Thomas, Joshua Katcher, Lucy Watson, Earthling Ed, Melanie Joy, Alexi Lubomirski as well as Emma Hakansson, founder of Collective Fashion Justice who will be in discussion with centre co-founder Bel Jacobs are the showing.
With enormous thanks to WaterBear.
