Film Screening of Migrant Dreams and Keynote Lecture by Min Sook Lee

Thursday, November 16, 2017 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

2nd Annual Kerry Preibisch Lecture Series; Film Screening of Migrant Dreams and Keynote Lecture by Min Sook Lee.  Presented by the International Migration Research Centre.

This event is the Second Annual Dr. Kerry Preibisch Global Social Justice and Migration Lecture Series organized by the International Migration Research Centre. Dr. Kerry Preibisch was a prolific scholar in the area of social justice and migration, who died of cancer in January, 2016, at the height of her career. The intention of this annual memorial lecture/event will be to add to the myriad ways that scholars and students can keep her research and vision of promoting migrants’ human rights alive into the future. Invited speakers must bring a global social justice perspective to their lecture pertaining to migration, and are encouraged to engage directly with Kerry’s work.

Migrant Dreams: A powerful feature documentary by multiple award-winning director Min Sook Lee (El Contrato, Hogtown, Tiger Spirit) 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. Migrant workers who deserve basic labour and human rights. Canada it seems, has failed them.

Free Public Event.
