Jim Cricchi has been an editor for 20 years, working on documentaries (Bedlam, One Big Home), feature films (Milarepa, I Do and I Don’t), television (Vice on HBO, 60 Minutes), and short films for The Criterion Collection and The New York Times. In 2000, he directed the award-winning fiction feature Gasoline Rainbows. Los Lecheros (Mountainfilm, 2018) is his first documentary as director. The film unveils how closely intertwined the fates of undocumented immigrant workers and Wisconsin’s $43 billion dairy industry are. Both grapple with their options for survival as fear of ICE raids and deportations grows with the Trump administration. His work on the film led to the creation of Twelve Letter Films, a joint venture production company he began with Susan Peters.
