Join Cinema Politica for a special evening to honour and celebrate the documentary and activism work of tenure track Assistant Professor Min Sook Lee, whose new film MIGRANT DREAMS is set to launch this Spring.

We are honoured that Abanaki filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin will be present at this special event to give Lee CP’s Alanis Obomsawin Award for Commitment to Community and Resistance

Lee will give a presentation of her work, which spans several decades and includes television shows, theatrical documentary and online media. Throughout her career she has shown an stalwart dedication and commitment to both human rights and environmental protection. 

In particular, Lee’s efforts to raise awareness and realize concrete changes concerning the lives of new immigrants and migrant workers in Canada resonates with Cinema Politica’s mandate to screen truth to power while showcasing alternative perspectives and strengthening communities engaged in struggle against oppressive systems.

Lee will screen segments from several of her films including TIGER SPIRIT, EL CONTRATO, HOGTOWN, BADGE OF PRIDE, and her newest, much-anticipated MIGRANT DREAMS.
