HUMAN FLOW – Panoramic Document of the Global Refugee Crisis
Thursday 11th Jan 7.45pm
Shot across an astonishing 23 countries, Human Flow is artist Ai Weiwei’s panoramic document of the global refugee crisis. Filmed with awe-inspiring breadth but never losing sight of individual human stories, this is a visually arresting work with a profound compassion for its subjects. Making extensive use of drone photography, it depicts the plight of the 65 million people currently displaced in countries including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany, Iraq, Italy, Mexico and Turkey. And – straying beyond the headlines – Human Flow also offers a clear picture of the forces behind the crises and watches as new stories, sometimes darker, sometimes more hopeful, begin to bloom.
