“The Fair Trade” & Conscientious Projector

This Thursday (December 11th), Conscientious Projector will host a free screening of “The Fair Trade“. Come support local entertainment made by local filmmakers (Burning Hear Productions)! Q&A to follow. The documentary starts at 7 pm at The Armory Center for the Arts. Light refreshments served.

About this film: The feature documentary The Fair Trade tells the story of Tamara Johnston who, devastated by the tragic death of her fiance, makes a bargain with God in exchange for a meaningful life. She and her twin sister Shelby join forces with brother-in-law Steven to start one of the first fair trade skincare companies—Anti-Body. Even as Tamara becomes a successful activist for human rights and social justice causes, despair over her loss remains unabated. As she nears the deadline of her bargain, a trip to Africa allows her to visit the fair trade co-op from which Anti-Body buys its organic shea butter. There, she finds a surprising answer to what is required of her in exchange for a sustainable life.
