Documentary Film "Hide" Takes Us Inside the Lives of Vermont's Migrant Workers Struggles for Dignity

“If you are drinking milk in the morning or in the night. Don’t forget that me and thousands and thousands of guys are milking the cows for you.”--Bernadino Hernandez in "Hide"

Documentary film "Hide" takes us inside the daily lives of several migrant dairy workers from Latin America who sustain Vermont's iconic dairy farms and working landscapes. Hide illuminates the feelings and experiences of the hidden lives of migrant farmworkers--feelings of isolation, fear, lack of recognition and sometimes hope. Using an unusual narrative form, the film combines original music, obscured images, and multi-voiced narration to provide an intimate glimpse at the daily lives of migrant workers and their fight for dignity.
