Film Info

The modern garment industry is defined by the "sweatshop" where undocumented workers toil under the radar of labor laws for substandard wages, without breaks or benefits. Enter American Apparel and SweatX, two T-shirt factories in downtown L.A. trying to do it differently. But while SweatX is backed by 2.5 million in venture capital by ice-cream maverick Ben Cohen, American Apparel was built from the ground up by eccentric and controversial entrepreneur, Dov Charney. No Sweat is a fast-paced documentary that goes behind the label, comparing two very different companies with a single goal: To take the sweat out of the shop. But do they have what it takes to survive in today's global market place?

Press

"A strikingly visual film, which ultimately points out hat capitalism cannot possibly solve our sweatshop problem. We need a movement for a global living wage."

-Tom Hayden, Social and Political Activist

"Blasting the screen with sure-footed confidence, director Amie Williams has crafted a powerful documentary that shines a light on the popular American apparel clothing line, and the bigger issues that surround the garment industry in America."

-Chaz Bennett, AFI programmer
