Sramik Awaaz: Workers Voices Documentary Screening
Palace Kino Cinema
45 Collins Street
Sramik Awaaz: Workers Voices is a crowd-funded documentary that explores the lives, work and organising efforts of Bangladesh's garment workers. Through interviews carried out in 2014 and 2015, the film chronicles the experiences of female garment workers at home, in the factory, and in their struggle for rights.
After the film, join speakers from the University of Melbourne, Textile Clothing and Footwear Union Australia and Oxfam, in a dialogue about worker rights and the global garment industry.
Workers Voices is the first documentary produced by Law@TheMargins, a not-for-profit media and legal advocacy organisation. Funds raised from the night will be donated to Law@TheMargins to help with worker organising in Bangladesh.
Tickets $25 (includes a drink):
The screening is supported by Melbourne Social Equity Institute and Melbourne Research Alliance to End Violence against women and their children (MAEVe).
