The first feature-length film by internationally renowned visual artist Ai Weiwei, Human Flow explores the heartbreaking global refugee crisis from the Mediterranean to the Middle East to the Mexican-US border. With currently 65 million people forcibly displaced from their homes worldwide, Ai Weiwei travels the globe filming the faces of this great human tragedy and the execrable places they are temporarily forced to call home. In Ai Weiwei’s hands, we are confronted both by the monumental scope of the crisis, which he manages to capture through informative on-screen titles and a dizzying number of settings (often shot by drone overhead), and also by the inescapably personal nature of this geopolitical disaster, something that is both shared by millions and experienced individually by all those who suffer from the crisis’s absence of “all forms of security.” It is hard to imagine a more timely or vital work of contemporary documentary cinema than Ai Weiwei’s deeply moving portrait of human suffering and struggle.
