A Time to Rise

Canada, 1981 (MIFF 1983)

Director: Anand Patwardhan, James Munro

Pressure from farm owners traditionally excluded farm workers from labour legislation regulating their pay or working conditions. Farm workers eventually formed the Canadian Farm Workers' Union, and this documentary records their struggles to achieve their working rights. Ninety percent of the workers are from Judia.
