After the screening of The Golden Thread, moderator Lynn Zebeda will have a discussion with director Nishtha Jain and speakers Luisa Moreno Ruiz and Zamaney Menso (both from Mondiaal FNV). We will raise the question why international labour union work is important, and which impact that can have on the products we consume.
This screening is a partnership with Mondiaal FNV. The programme is in English.
