Min Sook Lee is an award-winning documentary filmmaker. Her latest effort is called “Migrant Dreams”. It follows the lives of agricultural workers, who were brought to Canada under the Temporary Foreign Worker Program. The documentary was commissioned by TVO and has been featured in film festivals across Canada over the past year.
Lee joined The Markup to discuss the challenges of covering this topic, how the film came together and how the media coverage of migrant workers has changed in recent years.
