Summary/Review: Traceable is a documentary that is set against the backdrop of the fast-fashion industry and our increasing disconnect with where and how clothing is made and whose hands create it. By interviewing traceability experts and intercutting those interviews with the story of emerging designer Laura Siegel's journey across India as she produces her Fall/Winter 2013 collection using ethical and transparent practices, this film explores our connection to the communities impacted by the products we consume. But how will the market perceive and react to an idealistic designer whose aim is to connect the consumer to the hand that crafted her garments? And is positioning her collection in the sustainable domain enough to perpetuate her career long-term?
