    • Synopsis
    • In a globalizing world, seeking more and more cheaper labour everyday, Bangladesh became the 2nd largest provider of world clothing lead by China. In only 4 decades it became a 25 Billion US$ export industry, directly engaging 4 million workers, mostly women… and now targeting to double it by 2021 with 50 Billion US$ export! ‘Testimony of a Thread’ explores the connecting worlds of hope and despair around this industry lately marked for man-made catastrophes like Savar Building Tragedy (2013), considered as the deadliest garment-factory accident in history and deadliest accidental structural failure in modern human history.
