Earth to Mouth
Directed by Yung Chang - 2002.
Filmed at the Wing Fong Farm in Ontario, this documentary follows the
tilling, planting and harvesting of Asian vegetables destined for Chinese
markets and restaurants. On 80 acres of land, Lau King-Fai, her son and
a half-dozen migrant Mexican workers care for the plants. For Yeung
Kwan, her son, the farm represents personal and financial
independence. For his mother, it is an oasis of peace. For the Mexican
workers, it provides jobs that help support their children back home.
Produced by the National Film Board of Canada (NFB).
