Sweatshop: Deadly Fashion (2014)

4

A five-part Norwegian documentary series examining the lives of sweatshop workers in Cambodia through the eyes of three young, relatively wealthy Norwegian citizens.  From the day they arrive in Cambodia they begin to see how different their lives are from the lives of people nearly half way around the globe.  By the time their trip is over, much more than their outlook on the clothes they wear is changed.  Their whole perspective is forever altered after a few days of living, working, and speaking with fellow human beings who spend most of their lives working long hours up to 7 days a week for only a few dollars each day in sweatshops throughout the world like those in Cambodia.  

Only Part 1 of 5 is available here on FFA.  For the rest of the series, please visit here.

NOTE:  This documentary primarily is in Norsk with English subtitles.  Also, the individual who shared this video outside of FFA (see website link below) is not the same individual that has shared the video here.

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, while 99% of our library is free to access and always will be. 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 patrons, we partner with filmmakers and distributors to provide free access to a growing number of films that are normally pay-per-view. With just 20 highly curated films at the moment, it's basically a very, very tiny Netflix for world changers, but its main function is to support the library as a whole.

If you'd like to know more, want to help out, or you're a filmmaker looking to collaborate, feel free to get in touch!

Cheers,  Tim Hjersted
