History[edit | edit source]

In 2006, Rainbow Collective was founded by Hannan Majid and Richard York.[2][3] The company specialises in creating documentaries which highlight and deal with human and children's rights issues.[4]

It have shot, directed and produced documentaries in South Africa,[2] Bangladesh,[1][2] Iraq[2] and the UK,[2] and have won awards in Dubai, France and the Czech Republic.[4] They have collaborated with Traid (Textiles Recycling for Aid and International Development),[5] War On Want,[3] Amnesty International, The Consortium For Street Children, Labour Behind the Label and International Labor Rights Forum.[6] Their films have been exhibited at film festivals including, Abu Dhabi, Cambridge, Bite The Mango, Cape Town, Durban, East End, Leeds International[7] and AlJazeera International Documentary.

Its 30-minute documentary film Tears in the Fabric focused on one family in the aftermath of the 2013 Savar building collapse.[3][8] It premiered at Regent's University London in 2014.[1]

In partnership with Traid, "they have made a series of citizen journalist films with Cambodian garment workers"[5] that Lucy Siegle, writing in The Guardian in 2017, considered "well worth a watch".

In August 2017 they became members of DIGNItex,[9] a platform for defending decent jobs in the garment industry.
