Red Clothes

Red Clothes is a sordid story of profound indifference to individual rights and humanity at the cost of a fashion revolution of contemporary Cambodia, where an exodus of young people from the countryside is staffing the garment industry in the capital city as a cheap workforce. The story centers on the family of a young garment worker who is fighting the impending tragedy of possible amputation of his leg due to bullet injuries during a workers’ demonstration. As the family sinks further into gloom, the starving labourers, ironically, toil with helms and needles for bumper output of avant-garde apparel to send them off to the insatiable West.
