Migrant Dreams’ World Premiere at Hot Docs Festival

It has been 3 years in the making and I think of all those weekends, out on the road, in the farms with Min Sook Lee and camera following every step, every word and contact with migrant farmworkers in rural Ontario. Even in rallies and talks beyond the farms, the camera was rolling. There is much that has gone into the making of this new film, Migrant Dreams among many of us. It is a snapshot of the webs that confine people in Canada’s most precarious of Temporary Foreign Worker Programs.

The film is all about migrant women, their voices and stories of defiance against systems of immigration and labour apartheid that are intensifying not only in Canada but throughout the world. The migrant sisters who courageously shared their stories deserve our witnessing. Be there May 1st: Hot Docs
