About the Movie

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 behind to the unknown potential of the future. Human Flow comes at a crucial time when tolerance, compassion and trust are needed more than ever. This visceral work of cinema is a testament to the unassailable human spirit and poses one of the questions that will define this century: Will our global society emerge from fear, isolation, and self-interest and choose a path of openness, freedom, and respect for humanity?

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: An artful, solemn globe-hop epic of the refugee crisis with an unfortunate cast of millions. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Oct 19, 2017

Fresh: Human Flow leaves us wondering what will become of this lost generation, stranded without home or schooling or work, if or when they run out of hope and turn to anger or despair. – Ella Taylor, NPR, Oct 13, 2017

Fresh: Weiwei doesn't break any new ground in covering the global refugee crisis, but he vividly illustraes - in straightforward yet artistic terms - the scale of the problem without compromising the dignity or humanity of the survivors. – David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 18, 2017

Fresh: The film is all the more powerful for being so calm and unhurried. Ai doesn't castigate or preach. He doesn't have to. The facts, the images, speak for themselves. Instead, he bears witness. – Mark Feeney, Boston Globe, Oct 26, 2017
