He travels Canada to capture the experience of precarity and the fight against the exploitation of contract faculty in higher ed. IN SEARCH OF PROFESSOR PRECARIOUS introduces you to Jen, a young sessional trying to balance teaching, caring for her young family and finishing her PhD, so that she can be considered for a decent university job; Sandra Mac, fighting to reverse the 23% pay cut handed to her and her long time precarious faculty colleagues; Marco, leading a drive to get the sessional majority in his faculty association their democratic rights; and Pam, a choreographer and a leader in the largest higher ed strike in Canadian history. Join the fight for equality portrayed in this dramatic, moving and revealing film.
