Filmed over one year, Human Flow was shot by 25 film crews in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany, Hungary, Iraq, Israel, Mexico, Pakistan, Palestine, Serbia, Syria, Turkey and elsewhere. World-renowned artist, activist and filmmaker Ai Weiwei artfully captures the massive and shocking breadth of the global migration crisis in this epic film—portraying the plight of today’s 65 million forcibly displaced individuals, the highest number ever to be forced out of their homes by war, famine and climate change on long, treacherous journeys in search of new lives.
“Mountainous, sprawling, chaotic…This is angry, thoughtful, straightforward activist journalism: blunt, simple and impossible to ignore.” —Dave Calhoun, Time Out NY
