Eaton Lecture Theatre (80 Gould Street)
As Canada shifts its immigration policy to promote temporary, rather than permanent immigration policy, Toronto filmmaker Min Sook Lee has been tracking the effects of these changes on migrant workers’ lives.
Min Sook Lee will be discussing art and activism and how her films about/with migrant workers are a tool for migrant worker justice. Showing excerpts from her award-winning documentaries, she will talk about building a sense of authorial voice and strengthening community engagement over time. After her presentation she’ll be joined by Chris Ramsaroop of Justicia for Migrant Workers for a conversation and q&a.
