Los Lecheros
   
WHO WE ARE

Brooklyn, New York

Los Lecheros:


The fates of undocumented immigrant workers and Wisconsin's $43 billion dairy industry are closely intertwined – and both are grappling with their options for survival as Trump administration policies increase their fears of ICE raids, deportations and separation of children from their families.

About the Film

A collaboration between Twelve Letter Films and the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism, Los Lecheros gets to the heart of the relationship between farmers, undocumented immigrant workers, families, activists, and a state economy as they all respond to the pressures of anti-immigrant threats and legislation. Los Lecheros is a timely document of a community working both for and against its own best interests.
