    An inconvenient truth: the Western fashion industry stands on forced child labor in the Third World. FASHION VICTIMS 2.0 is the animated recreation of the mural painted by ESCIF in January 2022 in front of a well-known fashion store in Valencia. The painting exposes our passivity towards child labor and its harsh conditions in developing countries. The film brings to life the people painted on the wall to show their alienation and the nonsense of our unsustainable consumption habits.
