LabourStart Conference, Toronto, 2016

We presented at LabourStart and met fascinating people working for social change.  Chris Ramsaroop, co-founder of Justicia, also joined our conversations.

VIC203– CHANGING THE FRAME ON MIGRANT WORKER JUSTICE  THROUGH DOCUMENTARY PRAXIS

The relationship between documentary and social movements is discussed in this workshop. For over a decade filmmaker Min Sook Lee has worked in collaboration with migrant justice activist Evelyn Encalada Grez to portray dimensions of the fight for migrant worker justice.  They have worked on three projects: El Contrato (2003), Teo in Toronto (2014)  and Migrant Dreams (2016).  The workshop will focus on the following issues: intersections of labour, border politics, migration, art and social change; and organizing for migrant worker justice.
