Video Resources

We’ve compiled a list of videos that explore some of the key concepts that inform the Green Resilience Project: climate change, income security, basic income, community resilience and more. We’ll update it on an ongoing basis for the duration of the Project. If you know of a video that would make a great addition to this list, feel free to get in touch.

Work/Labour

El Contrato: “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 desire for dignity and respect.”
