Human Flow
26 September 2018
  Rating 12

Germany (2017) 140 minutes
Director: Ai Weiwei
Cast:

Made over the span of a year across 23 countries, Human Flow is artist Ai Weiwei’s panoramic document of the global refugee crisis. Filmed with world-spanning breadth but never losing sight of individual human stories, this is a visually arresting work that makes extensive use of drone photography. Compassionate towards its subjects, the film provides insights into the plight of the 65 million people currently displaced by war, famine and climate change. Cutting through the saturation of news images of the crisis, Weiwei artfully captures the scale of global migration in this epic film.
