TLN Media Group Presents Original Documentary Feature:

The Invisible Men (Los Hombres Invisibles)

Giving a voice to migrant workers – one of Canada`s most vulnerable communities

(Toronto, ON) July 15, 2020 – During COVID-19, the plight of migrant workers is once again front and center. TLN Media Group (TMG), Canada’s most influential multilingual media company is broadcasting its original documentary production The Invisible Men (Los Hombres Invisibles) on Sunday, July 19 on TLN Television at 6pm/et and Univision Canada at 10pm/et.

With the Canadian food system reeling from widespread COVID-19 outbreaks among Ontario farms, The Invisible Men shines a light on an industry that is otherwise overlooked and gives a voice to one of Canada’s most vulnerable communities: migrant workers. With the majority arriving from Mexico, it examines the challenges and personal journeys of Canada’s “invisible men”.

In a recent Globe and Mail investigation, migrant farm workers in southern Ontario have not been adequately tested for COVID-19, putting their lives at risk in controversial living and working conditions as well as putting Canada’s food system in jeopardy during a critical harvest season.

As a leader in supporting and developing Canadian multiculturalism, TLN Media Group produces and commissions hundreds of culturally significant programs each year with an extensive catalogue of original titles in English, Spanish, Italian, Russian and Tagalog. Its original productions tell unique stories of Canada’s diverse citizens, history and the future of Canadian multiculturalism in the wake of globalization.

The original documentary is also complemented by English and Spanish language websites, featuring exclusive online content, bonus interviews, archival photographs and videos.
