Filmmaker's note

In our modern consumer society people so rarely think about where their clothing come from. In Awana we wanted to examine the process behind the making of a simple piece of clothing. In following the journey of a scarf and those who labor to make it - from the shearing of the wool, the dying of the fabric, and the weaving - we're able to see how often we under appreciate and underpay for our clothing.


Director Billy Silva and Producer Darrell Hartman will be available for Q&A following both the June 7 screening at Windmill Studios and the June 11 screening at Wythe Hotel.
