Double Bill: El Contrato (51:14) & Teo in Toronto (4:26)

"This documentary from Min Sook Lee (Tiger Spirit) follows a poverty-stricken father from Central Mexico, along with several of his countrymen, as they make their annual migration to southern Ontario to pick tomatoes. For 8 months a year, the town's population absorbs 4,000 migrant workers who toil under conditions, and for wages, that no local would accept. Yet despite a fear of repercussions, the workers voice their desre for dignity and respect."

"Teo in Toronto follows immigrant farmer Teodora as he visits a community project in Toronto, where formerly homeless youth grow their own food."

Despite being able to grow our own food during the summer, we remain dependent on the working classes of other countries for a large part of our harvest in Ontario. Come out and learn about the working conditions of immigrant workers who continue to grow a great deal of our food.

We'll start the first film at 6:10 pm, watch both films, and then have a discussion.

Organizer:Rachael Charbonneau or 705-670-1982

About the Sudbury Working Group

The Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op was formed to create independent media in the North, to speak to our issues and outlooks on our communities as well as the world around us. Independent media provides an avenue for people who are wishing to gain critical perspective on the issues that matter most to us, and to give a voice to those people and stories that you won't find in the mainstream media.
