Copyright notice on container:Brio Media and Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. “The film makes the farmworker’s union fight for recognition into a tough but exhilarating drama… the film never lapses into rhetoric but is carried along by well paced action.”
“A stirring documentary that left me fascinated by the dignity and passion with which farm labourers are facing down fear and violence to form a union…”
Originally released theatrically in 2011
On April 6, 1980, the Canadian Farmworkers Union came into existence.
A TIME TO RISE documents the conditions among Chinese and Indian immigrant workers in British Columbia that provoked the formation of the union, and the opposition of growers and labor contractors to the threat of unionization. Made over a period of two years, the film is eloquent testimony to the progress of the workers movement from the first stirring of militancy to the energetic canvassing of union members.
In Hindi with English subtitles.
