Who really made your clothes? That’s the question director Mary Nighy poses at the start of Handprint, a short film commissioned by Eco-Age creative director Livia Firth spotlight the challenges faced by garment workers worldwide. Starring Hollywood scion Elettra Wiedemann (her mom’s Isabella Rossellini; her grandmother, the legendary Ingrid Bergman), the film imagines what it would be like if we could connect with the people who make our clothes. “The more I see this film, the more I realize just how important it is for all of us to make the connection with the hands of the real people who make our clothes,” Firth says. We can make a difference to their lives by never forgetting this connection.”
