FREE Screening of Migrant Dreams by Min Sook Lee

Place:
Auditorium, Room 190,
OCAD University, 100 McCaul St.

Time: Monday, October 24th, 7pm

A powerful feature documentary by multiple award-winning director Min Sook Lee (El Contrato, Hogtown, Tiger Spirit) and Emmy award-winning producer Lisa Valencia-Svensson (Herman’s House), tells the undertold story of migrant agricultural workers struggling against Canada’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) that treats foreign workers as modern-day indentured labourers. Under the rules of Canada’s migrant labour program, low wage migrants are tied to one employer.

Post Screening discussion with:
Min Sook Lee, Director
Evelyn Encalada Grez, Adjunct Professor, York University and co-founder of Justice for Migrant Workers
Adrian A. Smith, Associate Professor, Carleton University and co-editor of "Unfree Labour?: Struggles of Migrant and Immigrant Workers in Canada"
