WAHC and the Institute on Globalization and the Human Condition present the Hamilton premiere of Migrant Dreams, a film by Min Sook Lee.

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 under told story of migrant agricultural workers struggling against Canada’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) that treats foreign workers as modern-day indentured labourers.

Doors open at 6:30, film begins after remarks by Min Sook Lee at 7 pm.

Stay for a post-screening Q&A with director Min Sook Lee and activist Evelyn Encalada.

Refreshments to follow.
