More than 65 million people around the world have been forced from their homes to escape famine, climate change and war, the greatest displacement since World War II. Filmmaker Ai Weiwei examines the staggering scale of the refugee crisis and its profoundly personal human impact. Over the course of one year in 23 countries, Weiwei follows a chain of urgent human stories that stretch across the globe, including Afghanistan, France, Greece, Germany and Iraq.
Human Flow captures an eventful year in 23 countries, following a chain of human stories that stretches across the globe. The desperate search of people from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Mexico and Turkey for safety, shelter, and justice is captured. Refugee camps, ocean crossings and barbed-wire borders are all part of their story of courage, endurance. and adaptation. Ultimately, the unassailable human spirit is captured, leaving one question: Will our global society emerge from fear, isolation, and self-interest and choose a path of openness, freedom, and respect for humanity?
