An indie documentary about the ethical fashion industry

Talks with: Mantis World, Greenpeace, Textile Exchange, Ananda Pascual, Pweye, Lohada, Fundación Emotiva, Down Toledo, Sunflaj, Nómada Market


For years we have been spectators of two very different realities in the world of fashion. On the one hand, the series of scandals that show exploitation and job insecurity, fatal accidents in factories with no security, environmental destruction and widespread abuse of human rights by some of the major textile companies.

On the other hand, there is an emerging movement of small businesses and designers committed to change the status quo. They state their model on two pillars: the passion for art of fashion and respect for human rights.

Do we change it?


The documentary DO WE CHANGE IT? shows this second vision of fashion, much less known by society. Viewers can watch a group of companies and organizations that works to transform the textile industry in a sustainable engine of economic and social development.

Starting with the first steps of an NGO project, the documentary shows the reality of several companies and designers of the entire chain of production: Cotton producers, processing and screen printing companies, designers, managers, and entrepreneurs. The film opens the debate on the importance of traceability in the production chain, certifications and business challenges. Alongside, DO WE CHANGE IT? reflects on the commitment of any company to social development and the service to be provided to people instead of economy.

Films For Action is a library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Over the last 15 years, we've reviewed and curated over 1,000 free documentaries and 4,000 short films, plus over 150 pay-per-view documentaries, spanning 34 topics related to changing the world.

During this time we've been able to reach tens of millions of people - not by owning a TV network or spending truckloads of cash on advertising, but because millions of awesome people keep sharing 'films for action' with their friends on social media - in particular, our 850,000 supporters on Facebook and 70,000 site members. 

One of the coolest things is, thanks to our patrons, our library is ad-free and 100% supported by member donations. The Pay-Per-View films on our site, of course, help support the filmmakers, and 90-100% of the revenue for PPV films hosted by us goes to the filmmakers. 

To thank our $5/mo patron subscribers, we partner with filmmakers to provide access to a growing number of films that are unavailable for free. With just 29 highly-curated films at the moment, it's basically a mini "Netflix for world changers," but its main function is to support the library as a whole, which is 99% free and always will be.

Want to become a patron? Subscribe here. You can cancel or pause your subscription at any time.

If you'd like to know more, want to help out, or you're a filmmaker or distributor looking to collaborate, drop us a line via our contact page. 

You're also welcome and encouraged to submit videos directly to our library. Just click +Add Video at the top of the site and paste the video URL to get started. We share our favorite submissions with our fans on social media and feature them more prominently on the site.
