Earth Day Film
April 26, 2019
In conjunction with the Buffalo Bill Center of the West’s Earth Day event the following day, we host a screening of the 2015 documentary The True Cost. The film is a story about clothing and the impact the clothing industry has on the world. As noted on the film’s website, “The True Cost is an unprecedented project that invites us on an eye-opening journey around the world and into the lives of the many people and places behind our clothes.”
Running time for the film is 92 minutes. You can even bring your own popcorn and settle in for this thought-provoking film.
Our Earth Day celebration then continues on Saturday, April 27, with free admission all day, and Earth Day activities from noon–4 p.m.
