Min Sook Lee / Canada / 2016 / 88 ' / English - Indonesian - Spanish / S.T. English
A powerful documentary that exposes the under-told story of migrant agricultural workers struggling against Canada’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program.
MIGRANT DREAMS exposes the underbelly of the Canadian government labour program that has built a system designed to empower brokers and growers to exploit, dehumanize and deceive migrant workers who have virtually no access to support or information in their own language. Workers willing to pay exorbitant fees to work at minimum wage jobs packing the fruits and vegetables we eat in our homes. Migrant workers who deserve basic labour and human rights. Canada it seems, has failed them.
