We sat down with Olmo Parenti, the director and filmmaker behind the 3 of the 6 episodes of the groundbreaking docuseries "JUNK".
JUNK is an Italian docuseries co-produced by Will Media and Sky Italia. The docuseries follows fashion advocate Matteo Ward as he visits Chile, Ghana, Bangladesh, Indonesia, India and Italy, looking at a different problem within the fashion industry. By telling the stories of people and ecosystems that directly suffer from fast fashion, JUNK casts a new light on its unseen, often ignored impacts on the fashion industry.
During our interview with Parenti, the director shared intriguing behind-the-scenes stories and his personal journey in creating "JUNK". Our conversation was an insightful and sobering reminder of the responsibility that comes with our daily fashion choices.
