Central American dairy workers in the Northeast reminisce about their relationship to the land, labor practices and their home countries. Hours, days, weeks and years pass by and the repetitiveness of the labor makes way to new families in a non-place. Tierra de Leche is an exploration of multiple species exploited by capitalistic forces, both humans and cows, and questions the technologies we have created to maximize efficiency over liberation.
