Tuesday, May 2, 2017 - 7:00pm

The Canadian Association of Journalists has recognized Min Sook Lee, filmmaker and assistant professor in the Faculty of Art, for her documentary Migrant Dreams in the Labour reporting category. The award follows a Canadian Hillman prize for Journalism, also for Migrant Dreams, which Lee received in early 2017. Migrant Dreams tells the story of workers who came to Ontario to work in greenhouses as part of Canada’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program. The film, which Lee wrote and directed, focuses mainly on a group of women from Indonesia who work packing vegetables in the southwestern Ontario town of Leamington.

Lee has made numerous critically acclaimed documentaries: My Toxic Baby, Tiger Spirit, Hogtown, El Contrato and The Real Inglorious Bastards. Migrant Dreams is among TVO’s commissioned documentary programming and according to John Ferri, TVO’s Vice-President, Current Affairs and Documentaries, “forms a basis for an important conversation that is happening right now, in this country, about the rights of people who work to bring food to our tables.”
