Directed by world-renowned artist, activist and filmmaker Ai Weiwei, HUMAN FLOW explores the global refugee crisis through footage and interviews shot in 23 countries over the span of a year. Ai Weiwei artfully captures the massive and shocking breadth of the global migration crisis in this epic film, which portrays the plight of today’s 65 million forcibly displaced individuals – the highest number ever – forced out of their homes by war, famine and climate change on long, treacherous journeys in search of new lives.
