Over 65 million people around the world have been forced from their homes to escape famine, climate change and war in the greatest human displacement since World War II. Human Flow, an epic film journey led by the internationally renowned artist Ai Weiwei, gives a powerful visual expression to this massive human migration. The documentary elucidates both the staggering scale of the refugee crisis and its profoundly personal human impact. Captured over the course of an eventful year in 23 countries, the film follows a chain of urgent human stories that stretches across the globe in countries including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, and Turkey. Human Flow is a witness to its subjects and their desperate search for safety, shelter and justice: from teeming refugee camps to perilous ocean crossings to barbed-wire borders; from dislocation and disillusionment to courage, endurance and adaptation; from the haunting lure of lives left ...
Director and Producer Ai WeiWei wanted the film's purpose to pose the question, "Will our global society emerge from fear, isolation, and self-interest and choose a path of openness, freedom, and respect for humanity?" See more »
Cringing at Ai Wei Wei's desperation and need to get shots of his face
I don't know who this Ai Wei Wei is, but he needs to learn to chill out. Focus more on capturing the story instead of trying to get a glimpse of limelight through the misfortune of others.
It was really confusing because there are some beautiful shots in the film, the cinematography was good. But randomly you would just see this fat old asian guys face randomly appear throughout the film. I would've minded it if the dude was good looking, but in this case I was very startled. Not a good face to look at.
Scores were good though +
